Nadav Schirman, two-time Israeli Academy (Ophir) Award winner, made his start with a trilogy of high-voltage feature documentaries that delve into the psychology of spies and terrorists. The third of the trilogy, THE GREEN PRINCE, opened the Sundance Film Festival 2014 and subsequently won the Audience Award. Produced though his Frankfurt-based A List Films, together with Oscar-winning producers Simon Chinn and John Battsek, the film earned Schirman his first PGA nomination. 

Schirman recently directed the first episode, 'Lucasville', of critically acclaimed Netflix series CAPTIVE, which was executive produced by Simon Chinn and Doug Liman. He also produced upcoming Netflix Documentary THE LAST SHAMAN, executive produced by Leonardo di Caprio through Appian Way.
