In Chapter 2 of 15 in her 2013 Capture Your Flag interview, filmmaker Tricia Regan answers "What Childhood Experiences Have Been Most Fundamental to Shaping Who You Are Today?" Regan shares how not feeling understood as a child has drawn her to tell the stories of child subjects in dire situations or who do not quite fit into the world. These lead her to topics that include autism and stuttering and take her around the world to film in Northern Ireland and the United Arab Emirates. Tricia Regan is an Emmy Award-winning filmmaker known for writing, directing and producing documentary films, including the Emmy-winning "Autism: The Musical". She also has worked extensively in non-fiction television for A&E, ABC, FOX, Lifetime, MTV Networks and NBC. Regan earned a bachelors from Binghamton University and masters from New York University.
