Amos Kamil’s work deals with giving large, difficult subjects a human face. In 2012, “Prep School Predators”, his cover story for The New York Times Magazine documented decades of sexual abuse perpetrated by the staff of the Horace Mann School against dozens of students. Kamil received an Anne Cox Chambers Fellowship from the MacDowell Colony where he completed Great is the Truth, a book that provides an insider’s look at the HM survivors’ legal efforts to seek damages and get some kind of official apology out of their alma mater.
His work has also appeared in numerous media outlets including The New York Times Sunday Magazine, The Jerusalem Post, Newsweek, The Jerusalem report, Good Morning America, ABC, NBC, TNT, and ESPN. He is currently at work on several projects including The Three Legals, a modern day Odyssey set in post-American New Jersey.
Kamil received his BA from the University of Vermont and an MFA from the American Film Institute in Los Angeles. He lives with his family in Montclair, New Jersey
