Ellen Andors, Ph.D., videographer, anthropologist, teacher, socialist, political organizer, and single working parent, died on August 2, 2000, at the age of 54.
As a teacher of anthropology in the City University system for 25 years, Ellen used multi-media as a way to educate about capitalism’s ills and the need to struggle against them.
In 1994, Ellen became a member of Workers World Party, and joined the Peoples Video Network. She became a driving force in producing progressive videos documenting numerous struggles. She produced and edited many political videos that are broadcast around the globe.
The stunning Metal of Dishonor is a groundbreaking expose of the Pentagon’s use of depleted uranium weapons. The Prison-Industrial Complex: An Interview with Mumia Abu-Jamal features the political prisoner and award-winning journalist speaking from Pennsylvania’s death row with Monica Moorehead and Larry Holmes.
At the time of her death, Ellen was compiling footage for a comprehensive video exposing the dangers NATO poses to the peoples of the world. The Peoples Video Network is committed to finishing this important project.

TO ALL OUR DEAR FRIENDS AND COMRADES IN THE PEOPLES VIDEO NETWORK, IN THE INTERNATIONAL ACTION CENTER, AND IN WORKERS WORLD PARTY
All of us who are activists are inspired by the creative, resourceful activist life of Ellen Andors. Her skills and her determination bring us optimism that we also can keep on learning new skills and finding new ways to push forward the struggle against oppression and injustice. Her example lives on in her wonderful work, which is such a precious resource, even though we sorely miss the wonderful worker herself. Those of us who carry on the work of the Peoples Video Network, and those of us who rely on PVN to help us in all aspects of our fight against capitalism, and those of us who are committed to turning all of capitalism's propaganda tools back against the rotten system---- we all salute Ellen's life and celebrate the altogether-too-short time she was able to share it with us.
We hope all the work we do continues to salute and memorialize her as well.
