San Francisco , CA 94133
For over twenty years, Emmy award-winning directors/producers Dan Geller and Danya Goldfine have jointly created critically-acclaimed multi-character documentary narratives that braid their character’s individual personal stories to form a larger portrait of the human experience. Their most recent film, the award-winning Something Ventured (2011), premiered at SXSW in March, and is slated for broadcast as well as educational distribution worldwide. Geller and Goldfine’s work also includes Ballets Russes (2005), which appeared on a dozen critical “10 Best Films” lists, including those of Time Magazine and the Los Angeles Times; Now and Then: From Frosh to Seniors (1999), which aired on PBS as the lead program of the Independent Lens series; Kids of Survival: The Art and Life of Tim Rollins + K.O.S. (1996), which received two national Emmy Awards; FROSH: Nine Months in a Freshman Dorm (1994); and Isadora Duncan: Movement from the Soul (1988). Geller and Goldfine are currently in post-production on Satan Came to Eden: The Galapagos Affair, a murder mystery documentary set in the Galapagos Islands circa the 1930s.
