Chad Freidrichs


Director, The Cinema Within

Chad Freidrichs is an independent documentary filmmaker. Prior to The Cinema Within, he directed and produced four feature-length documentary films, including Jandek on Corwood (2003), The Experimental City (2017), and The Pruitt-Igoe Myth (2011). The Pruitt-Igoe Myth was acquired for the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, where a segment of the film was displayed in the museum’s galleries from 2019-2022.

Capable, resourceful, and independent, Freidrichs performs nearly every production task for his films. But he specializes in editing and the creative aspects of post-production, which he loves most of all.
