Jonathan Ramsey

Jonathan L. Ramsey is an American documentary filmmaker from Chicago based in Warsaw for the past 10 years. He never went to film school and started making films in Warsaw as a hobby at the age of 27. His most recent production was “It’s Okay to Panic” (“Można panikowa”), which tells the story of Polish climate scientist Prof. Szymon Malinowski and is the most popular Polish environmental documentary film in recent years. Ramsey’s previous films include Smog Wars, which aired on TVN24 in 2018, and Living with Warsaw, which aired on TVN Style in 2017. Ramsey co-wrote, directed, and produced It’s Okay to Panic independently and released it for free on YouTube in order to raise public awareness about the urgent threat of climate change in Poland. Ramsey is a graduate of Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago, where he studied Philosophy and Economics. He is currently developing his next environmental documentary project.
