Born in 1933 in Fresno, California, award-winning filmmaker Carol Monpere drew on her early years in the rural, Central Valley as inspiration for her work often throughout her fifty-year career writing screenplays, directing films and producing documentaries.
After graduating high school in 1950, Monpere studied play writing at Stanford University. She earned a bachelor's degree in three years and immediately began writing for a small Fresno television channel.
Over many years, Monpere refined her skills, writing for stage and television, then expanding to film and documentaries. She won both the Peabody Award and the Alfred I. DuPont-Columbia University Award for the 1980 PBS documentary "The Battle of the Westlands", and was a noted screen writer, producer, and director, with several notable films to her credit.
In 1977, Monpere’s film adaptation of "The Extraordinary Adventures of the Mouse and His Child," a novel by Russell Hoban, gained her much critical acclaim.
In 2006, Carol Monpere succumbed to a seven-year battle with breast cancer.
