Pieced Together (pictured above) tells the story of how Donna Sue Groves’ love for her mother Nina Maxine, a celebrated quilter, changed the American landscape – and saved her life after job loss, breast cancer, and multiple health concerns.
Julianne Donofrio is the Director of Pieced Together, the first documentary film about the American quilt square trail movement. Before making her independent film debut, Donofrio spent more than a decade at ABC News based in Washington, DC working on daily news, live event coverage, and long-form projects. As Field Producer for Nightline: The Survivors, which profiled two of the burn survivors from the 9-11 Pentagon attack and their rehabilitation, Donofrio received a 2002 George Foster Peabody Award and was cited in the Smithsonian Institution Exhibit September 11: Bearing Witness to History. Donofrio is also an independent production and media consultant.
