Daniel Roher’s films have taken him to every corner of the globe. Most recently, Roher directed the BAFTA, PGA, DuPont, and Academy Award winning documentary, NAVALNY. The film premiered at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival and received both the Audience and Festival Favorite Award and follows Alexei Navalny, leader of the Russian opposition, who survived an assassination attempt by poisoning in the summer of 2020. During Navalny’s months-long recovery, Roher was filming while a team of investigative journalists worked with Navalny to uncover the insidious would-be murder plot.
Prior to NAVALNY, Roher wrote and directed ONCE WERE BROTHERS: ROBBIE ROBERTSON AND THE BAND, his feature documentary debut. The film premiered on the opening night of the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival.
