Daniel Gordon grew up a fan of Sheffield Wednesday and has written two books on his favourite team. He began his filmmaking career at Sky Sports and Chrysalis TV and formed VeryMuchSo in 2001. His debut feature film, THE GAME OF THEIR LIVES (2002), took him to North Korea for the first time to find the original members of their 1966 World Cup team. The film released to international acclaim, winning him the UK RTS award for Best Sports Documentary. Gordon’s second film, A STATE OF MIND, again took him to North Korea where he followed two young gymnasts, aged 13 and 11, for nine months as they prepared for the Mass Games, the most elaborate human spectacle on earth. STATE played at major festivals and theatrically throughout the world. Rotten Tomatoes ranked it the best reviewed theatrical doc of 2004. CROSSING THE LINE (2006) marked the third and most ambitious film by Gordon to be set in North Korea – the story of Comrade Joe, the last American defector living in North Korea. He has since directed and produced two further feature docs - THE FLAPPING TRACK (2007) which delves into the murky world of independent greyhound racing and THE JOHN AKII BUA STORY, the gripping tale of the Ugandan hurdler whose gold medal win could not protect him from the clutches of Idi Amin.
