Filmmaker Joshua Seftel began his career at age 22 with the Emmy-nominated Lost and Found, a documentary film about Romania’s orphaned and abandoned children. The PBS broadcast of the film led to the American adoption of thousands of orphaned children. Seftel went on to direct the anti-war film War Inc., a political satire starring John Cusack, Ben Kingsley and Marisa Tomei, as well as the groundbreaking Emmy Award-winning television program Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. Recently, he created a YouTube series consisting of candid conversations between him and his 79-year-old mother. Seftel's essays and commentaries have appeared on CBS Sunday Morning, NPR, and This American Life.
