Lucy Walker grew up in London, England. She studied literature at Oxford University and directed theatre before winning a Fulbright Scholarship to attend NYU's graduate film program, where she won various awards and received an MFA. Her directing credits include music videos, short films, children's television (she was nominated for two Emmys for Outstanding Directing for Nickelodeon's BLUE'S CLUES), and DEVIL'S PLAYGROUND, a feature-length documentary about the struggles of Amish teenagers which premiered at Sundance and went on to win numerous accolades including the Audience Award at Sarasota, Jury Prize at Karlovy-Vary, Best Documentary and Grand Prize at the AFI DVfest, and nominations for three Emmys (Best Documentary, Best Directing, and Best Editing) and an Independent Spirit Award (Best Documentary). Lucy appeared as a guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show and the film is now a hit DVD. She was named one of Filmmaker magazine's "Top 25 New Faces in Film" and is currently writing and directing a fiction feature with BBC Films and Hart Sharp Entertainment. Lucy is blind in one eye and has been a patient at Moorfields Eye Hospital since birth - one of the initial reasons she was drawn to BLINDSIGHT. Prior to the shoot Lucy had never climbed mountains before, and during the course of the shoot she suffered a broken ankle, amoebic dysentery, giardiasis, headlice in her eyelashes, and altitude illness - and loved every minute of it.
