Martin and his colleagues
bring many years of experience to their work in print,
television, and film. Beautiful Faces is a "splendid documentary" according to Reforma, Mexico's leading newspaper. The documentary film Two Spirits was broadcast during the 2010-2011 season of the PBS series "Independent Lens," and won the season's Audience Award. Russell Martin's bestselling book projects--including Beethoven's Hair, Picasso's War, and Out of Silence--have been translated
into dozens of languages throughout the world.
He is known for synthesizing
the historic and contemporary elements of filmed and written stories, grounding narrative
in careful research, and making complex ideas readily comprehensible
and deeply humane.
