David Ridgen

B: 1969 in Arnprior, Ontario

David Ridgen began his career by learning on the job while working on the 2007 documentary Mississippi Cold Case, which led to the second only federal trial of the Ku Klux Klan in US history and the arrest of the guilty party. His recent works have been credited with the reopening of cold cases and led to arrests (Confession to Murder and A Garden of Tears), have made a progressive impact on the Israel/Palestine conflict (American Radical: The Trials of Norman Finkelstein) and spurred victim reconciliation with perpetrators (Reconciliation in Mississippi). Ridgen’s first feature drama, Memento, was released to critical acclaim in 1996. In March of 2016 CBC Radio announced a podcast series, Someone Knows Something, hosted by David Ridgen. Some sources say he was born in Stratford, Ontario. These are his credits as a director:
