Holly Hardman

Williamstown, Massachusetts, United States


Producer/Director Holly Hardman’s debut feature Besotted, an experimental dark comedy, was released theatrically by Artistic License Films in 2002. Hardman has been involved in film and entertainment since the 1980’s. Before she started making films, Hardman worked as a researcher for Rolling Stone, PBS, and Twentieth Century Fox by day, while writing and performing in the underground art worlds of New York and Los Angeles by night. Hardman formed Holy Sin Prods. in the early 1990’s and began writing, directing, and producing short films. She was one of the few female filmmakers to emerge from New York’s Transgressive Cinema movement. Left Behind in Louisiana, a portrait of evangelical Christians along the Gulf Coast recovering from Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, is Hardman’s first documentary effort.
