Luria Media is a London-based media company formed to create substantive content while revealing human truths through riveting narratives and compelling visuals. 

Luria Media prides itself on creating passionate and collaborative platforms to foster creativity and discover new ways of looking at our collective past, our present, our future and ourselves.

Catherine trained as a journalist to be one of the youngest investigative journalists for the Sunday Times/Business Times in South Africa. She is a UK Member of the Foreign Press Association and was the European Correspondent for the New York-based TV Channel, JBS.

She is currently expanding her film/media endeavors to include other subjects close to her heart as a fight against injustice e.g. plight of war veterans and dementia.

Catherine conceived the idea of Back to Berlin while working as a TV correspondent to cover the 2013 Maccabiah Games (Jewish Olympics) in Israel when she learnt that the German government would host the Jewish Summer Games at the infamous 1936 Waldbuhne Stadion, site of Hitler’s 1936 Olympics, for the very first time. For her, it meant an “ironic moment to capture” and go BACK TO BERLIN. 

Since founding Luria Media, Catherine Lurie has drawn together a strong team whose projects have been nominated for four BAFTAs, won over thirty international film awards, played in hundreds of festivals (including the prestigious film festivals – London, Edinburgh, Berlin, AFI and Palm Springs) and been distributed across the globe. Their past projects have received funding from the BBC, Channel 4, Film Four, CNN, Hallmark and the UK Film Council.
