Seftel began his career at 22 with Lost and Found, the Emmy-nominated documentary film about Romania’s orphaned and abandoned children. He followed this with several acclaimed independent films, including Taking on the Kennedys (one of TIME's “ten best of the year”), The Many Sad Fates of Mr. Toledano (Tribeca 2015), and It’s the Hard Knock Life (PBS), which the New York Times called “delightful.” He also directed the feature film War Inc., starring John Cusack, Ben Kingsley, Joan Cusack, and Marisa Tomei, and the Emmy-winning TV series Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. He has been a contributor to This American Life, and his commentaries have appeared on NPR, Salon.com, and CBS Sunday Morning.
