Elizabeth Block

Tribute to our friend and supporter Elizabeth Block

At the end of this tough year, on December 8th, Tipping Point lost another very dear friend.

Elizabeth Block – Liz – was a founding member of TPNS, with a deep passion for documentary film.  A New Yorker by birth, she was a journalist specialising in climate change, particularly renewable energy and previously financial journalism.  She had lived in London for more than 30 years and had been introduced to Tipping Point by another brilliant person – Harry Levinson – himself a science broadcaster and supporter of social action documentary. 

Liz was a major donor to TP throughout – both project and core funding – and was always unfailingly supportive and encouraging.  She was a staunch anti-Iraq war supporter and was so proud of the reception and impact of our film We Are Many; as a pro-Palestine  secular Jew, she was so 100% behind all our Palestine work – Open Bethlehem, Bethlehem Unwrapped, Make Apartheid History and Witch-hunt.

There is so much to say about Liz – her generosity and kindness, her unabashed directness and a fantastic sense of dry humour.  We miss her so much and she has gone too soon. Rest in peace our dear friend. We journeyed a wonderful journey together

Your TP family.
