Short biography
Judith Bronowski is the daughter of the late scientist Jacob Bronowski, host of "The Ascent of Man" television series, and sculptor Rita Coblentz. She is known for her exceptional films on folk artists of Mexico. In her films, the artists create their work and speak for themselves; although English translation prints were made, the magic of the art and culture presents itself best in the original tongue. It is a tribute to the strength of these films that non-Spanish speakers will miss very little of the personality of the artist when viewing the Spanish version. In 1998, she made a half-hour film called "Jonas Salk: Personally Speaking" for KPBS-TV San Diego, a profile that included extensive archival material on the development of the polio vaccine, and numerous sound bites from Dr. Salk's family and colleagues, along with information about his life after the polio era.

She is also the founder and chair of the award-winning New West Charter Middle School.
