Deborah Oppenheimer

Deborah Oppenheimer is an American film and television producer. She won an Academy Award in 2001 for best documentary feature for producing Into the Arms of Strangers: Stories of the Kindertransport (2000). The film was written and directed by Mark Jonathan Harris, released by Warner Bros., and made with the cooperation of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Judi Dench narrated. Following its theatrical release, it appeared on HBO and PBS.

In 2014, Into the Arms of Strangers: Stories of the Kindertransport was deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" by the Library of Congress and selected for preservation for all time in the National Film Registry.

Oppenheimer co-wrote the teacher’s study guide and co-authored with Harris the film’s companion book of the same name by Bloomsbury Publishing (2000). It has a preface by Richard Attenborough and an introduction by historian David Cesarani. The book was republished by Bloomsbury in 2017 and the film returned to HBO in May 2019.

Oppenheimer’s most recent documentary, FOSTER, presented by Participant Media and Emerson Collective, premiered on HBO in May 2019 during Foster Care Awareness Month. Reunited with writer/director Harris and several of the production team from ''Into the Arms of Strangers'', the film is a revealing first-hand look at the complex foster care system as seen through the eyes of those who know it best.

Oppenheimer conceived and led U.S. strategies and was production consultant to the Carnival Films television series, Downton Abbey during its complete run. The series was executive produced by Gareth Neame and written by Julian Fellowes. Downton Abbey is the most nominated non-U.S. show in history and the highest rated PBS drama ever.

As Executive Vice President of Carnival Films, Oppenheimer developed and executive produced Christopher Guest’s Family Tree for HBO and BBC1, starring Chris O'Dowd.

As President of Bruce Helford’s Mohawk Productions at Warner Bros., Oppenheimer executive produced hundreds of episodes of television shows starring Drew Carey, George Lopez, Wanda Sykes, Norm Macdonald, and Bernie Mac.

Oppenheimer was associate producer for the Cable ACE Award-winning production of the Showtime / PBS drama, Master Harold...and the Boys, written by Athol Fugard, produced by Michael Brandman, directed by Michael Lindsay-Hogg, and starring Tony-award winning actors John Kani, Matthew Broderick, and Zakes Mokae.
