Corinne wrote, directed, and appears in her feature-length documentary film, Safer in Silence. It was edited by Polish Academy Award winner, Milenia Fiedler. Containing footage she shot in Brazil, Poland, France, Portugal, and the U.S, the film follows Corinne’s search for the truth of her family’s hidden past, and their escape from Poland in the years before and during World War II. Safer in Silence has been an “Official Selection” in over fifteen international film festivals, and has received a number of awards, including “Best Story,” at the East Europe International Film Festival.

She has written a full-length play, The Sun Shines East, which was initially developed at the Actors Studio and then received its premier production in New York City.
