Biscuit Filmworks today announced the addition of sibling directorial duo the Mundo Sisters to its roster. Known for their award-winning documentary work, sisters Nadine Mundo and Rena Mundo Croshere recently expanded into the commercial world with a branded short for fashion designer Rachel Roy to promote her spring 2015 collection.
The Mundo Sisters gained notice in the sports world with their 2014 short film "Rowdy Ronda Rousey" for ESPN Films, about the trailblazing UFC champion and her meteoric rise. Within 24 hours of its release, it became the second most-viewed short film in ESPN history. The duo then re-teamed with ESPN to develop and direct "What Makes Us,” a series of shorts profiling top female athletes including soccer stars Megan Rapinoe and Sydney Leroux, and surf champion Carissa Moore. The latest installment features ice hockey player Hilary Knight, and airs this fall.
Previously, the Mundo Sisters’ 2013 feature documentary “American Commune” – about their childhood on a rural Tennessee commune and their culture shock upon leaving it – premiered to critical acclaim at the HotDocs International Film Festival and was later broadcast on Al Jazeera America. The duo got their start at MTV, where they created and directed “My Life (Translated)” and were directors on the Emmy-winning “True Life” documentary series.
“Entering into a formal relationship with a commercial production company marks an exciting new chapter for us, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to be teaming with Biscuit,” said the Mundo Sisters. “Biscuit is a great fit for us in terms of vision, caliber of work, and personalities, and we’re looking forward to tackling new challenges together.”
