Hunt has also directed and produced documentary films, including “Take This Heart’, a feature-length documentary that was honored with the Anna Quindlen Award for Excellence in Journalism. “No Place Like Home”, about a homeless family in Seattle, was selected for the Venice Film Festival, in Venice, Italy, and broadcast nationally on the PBS series P.O.V.
