Biography

David Frankham is an award-winning commercial and documentary director. In 2010, Frankham produced and directed the documentary film “Witness: Juarez.” The film follows conflict photographer Eros Hoagland as he covers the brutal drug war raging between Mexico and the cartels. “Witness: Juarez” went on to be shortlisted for the 2011 Academy Awards and was acquired by HBO as the pilot and basis for the documentary series “Witness.” The series was born out of Frankham’s belief that by following the experiences and struggles of war photographers who risk their lives in an attempt to reveal the truth, we would capture an honest, ground-level view of conflicts around the world, and the people affected, in a way that had not been seen before. The series, executive produced by Michael Mann and David Frankham, premiered on HBO in November. Frankham also directed three of the four films in the series — Juarez, Rio, and S. Sudan.
