Robin Schlaht

Raised in small-town Canada (Irvine, population 300), Robin Schlaht travels the world to make his films. Since graduating from the University of Regina's BFA Film and Video program in 1992, Robin's films have included Sons and Daughters, a documentary exploration of childhood in seven different countries, the feature length documentary Moscow Summer, shot in Russia in 1995, and The Heart Becomes Quiet, about survivors of the Union Carbide gas disaster in Bhopal, India. Robin's first dramatic feature film, Solitude, starring Lothaire Bluteau and Vanessa Martinez, premiered in 2001 to rave reviews throughout Canada and internationally.

Robin lives and works in Regina with his spouse, editor and filmmaker Heather Malek, and there he is active with the Regina Peace Action Coalition and is a member (and frequent board member) of the Saskatchewan Filmpool Cooperative.
