Meet the Directors:
Ben Knight studied photography at Chapel Hill High School in North Carolina but failed everything else so he dropped out and hoped nobody would ever ask to see a resume. So far, so good. Knight also has a man-husband filmmaking partner named Travis Rummel. Together the pair has won more than 70 film festival awards in the last 16 years and were once nominated for National Geographic’s Adventurers of the Year for their 2006 documentary DamNation – but they lost. Their recent film The Last Honey Hunter qualified for a 2019 Short Documentary Oscar.
