Author Joshua J. Marine says, “Challenges are what make life interesting and overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.” The same can be said for documentary filmmaking, especially this year’s Emmy-nominated documentary/nonfiction program directors, who all faced various obstacles while creating their six respective films.
