About Regis Tremblay
Regis is an American from Maine who has been living in Russia for nearly four years. He is a veteran filmmaker who has led a life of adventure and worn many different hats.
He spent 30 years in a religious order and 14 years as a Catholic priest. He taught high school journalism in Tucson which, he says, planted some seeds in his life and led to raising a family in Arizona, running a successful consulting company, and later, starting a nonprofit. After that, he was a radio show host in Portland, Maine!
Regis has traveled around the world to make documentaries like “The Ghosts of Jeju,” which he filmed in South Korea in 2012. Jeju is an eye-opening documentary about an an island where the United States opened a naval base, causing great harm to the local ecosystem and indigenous people of Jeju, whose protests fell upon deaf ears.
After filming Jeju, Regis traveled to Russia to finish producing “Thirty Seconds to Midnight,” a film about the growing threat of a nuclear confrontation between the United States and Russia.
These experiences were life-changing for Regis, who in 2020 moved to Yalta, Crimea, to begin a new life.
