"The present was an egg laid by the past, that had the future inside its shell."
- Zora Neale Hurston, Barnard College, Class of 1928
Daniella Kahane has written and produced a number of films that have won awards and garnered national and international attention, including One Per Cent, a feature documentary that received the Audience Award at the Vail Film Festival, Columbia Unbecoming, the documentary that exposed academic abuse and bias in the Middle East studies department at Columbia University. She has also worked for Academy-Award winning producer Wendy Finerman (Forrest Gump, Stepmom, The Devil Wears Prada, P.S. I Love You). She is currently working for Academy-Award nominated filmmaker Edet Belzberg (Underground Children, The Recruiter) on her latest documentary about genocide. On the non-profit front, in 2004 she founded an event consulting and planning group, Sensi6, which emerged out of the desire to create charity events that target a younger generation of givers. She has since produced events that have raised over one million dollars for organizations in need. She graduated summa cum laude with a BA in English and Film Studies from Barnard College, Columbia University.
