Director of ‘Victoria Pendleton: Cycling’s Golden Girl’, Daniel Gordon, has joined 2AM
The production company were captivated by his work on the documentary, which was screened as part of the BBC’s build up to the 2012 Olympics and now the production company is proud to announce that the award winning director Daniel Gordon has joined their roster.
The documentary, filmed over several months saw a unique side to Victoria on and off the track, and showcased Daniel’s ability to bring openness and honesty to the screen from his subject, combined with a fascinating story about the cyclist we thought we knew, in a beautifully shot film.
Daniel’s ability to find and craft documentaries from a wide range of subject matter with a strong visual aesthetic has led to a number of features including 'Crossing The Line' which was nominated for the Sundance Grand Jury Prize and investigates the story of Comrade Joe, the last American defector living in North Korea.
His latest film '9.79*' just premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and investigates the infamous and controversial 1988 Seoul Olympic men's 100m final, won by Canadian sprinter Ben Johnson. Johnson was subsequently stripped of his gold medal after testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs.
