Debra Chasnoff, Oscar-winning artist and activist, dies

SFGate Saturday, 11 November 2017
Debra Chasnoff, an Oscar-winning director and a stalwart, inspirational figure in the Bay Area’s rich community of documentary filmmakers, died at her San Francisco home Tuesday of metastatic breast cancer. She was 60. An activist who saw films as tools for social change, Ms. Chasnoff, known as “Chas” to friends and colleagues, made 12 documentaries, most often on the struggles of gays and lesbians. She won her Oscar in 1992 for “Deadly Deception: General Electric, Nuclear Weapons and Our Environment,” an expose of the energy giant’s production of nuclear weapons, and made Academy Award history when she came out as lesbian by thanking her female partner of the time, Kim Klausner.
