CJ Silberman got his start in filmmaking as a youth, when his parents gave him a Super 8 camera. He honed his craft making experimental films with his neighbors and earned his degree in film history from UC Berkeley, where he worked as an assistant director on a few low budget films. He then attended John F. Kennedy University, where he earned a law degree.
In 2007, Silberman released his first feature length documentary, The Injustice System in America, which examined the unfair treatment of people of color in the prison system.
His latest film, Becoming Jody II – The Coveting, a drama with elements of horror and comedy that Silberman describes as “Eraserhead meets Who’s Afraid of Virginia Wolfe?“, will premiere on May 14th at 9:30pm at the Clay Theater in San Francisco. Another screening will take place on June 7th at the New Parkway Theater in Oakland.
