Vivienne Roumani is an independent producer/director based in New York City. She brings to Out of Print a unique perspective gained as a director at the Library of Congress and the UC Berkeley Library, where she led digitization projects. Vivienne’s previous documentary, The Last Jews of Libya, narrated by Isabella Rossellini, had its U.S. premiere at the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival and was subsequently screened at major festivals and other venues around the world as well as on the Sundance channel.
Out of Print: The Movie: Out of Print draws us into the topsy-turvy world of the revolution that is changing everything about the printed word — and changing us. We find ourselves in the midst of the riveting debate over the future of ideas, where anyone can find out almost anything about any topic, anywhere, at lightning speed. With the unique perspective gained as a director at the Library of Congress and the UC Berkeley Library, filmmaker Vivienne Roumani weaves order as she tackles the questions confronting the modern word industry and shows that much more is at stake than how quickly we can access the latest byte.
