Don and Dana

Don Hardy and Dana Nachman are documentary filmmakers based in Northern California. Their first independent film is the critically acclaimed Witch Hunt.

Prior to Witch Hunt, Dana and Don collaborated on several television documentaries for NBC Bay Area. In 2002, they produced Close to Home, revisiting Bay Area families who lost loved ones a year before in the attacks on September 11th. The emotionally gripping story was awarded an Emmy, RTNDA and an Edward R. Murrow award for Best Documentary.

The team followed up that film with a scorching look at the medical marijuana debate in Pot & Politics, which garnered the pair an Associated Press award for Best Documentary. In 2007, they tackled the subject of Japanese internment during World War II in the Emmy-nominated Dreams to Dust.

Dana and Don are working on their next film titled The Human Experiment.
