Rennik Soholt

Rennik Soholt’s debut feature, Forced Change, is out now via iTunes, Apple TV and Amazon. Shot over the course of 14 years, the film is a groundbreaking documentary that looks past the modern news media’s broad coverage of Hurricane Katrina in order to reveal the touching human stories buried beneath the headlines. Soholt has produced and directed video shoots in over 25 countries across 5 continents, creating a body of work that includes web series, feature documentaries, branded content, animated segments, non-scripted television, and music videos. He produced and directed multiple episodes of the Emmy Award-winning travel series Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations, as well as the award-winning PBS documentary series Weekends with Yankee Magazine and the reality TV shows House Hunters International and Pawn Stars. He is the recipient of the James Beard award for the PBS series, Gourmet’s Diary of a Foodie, for which he also received an Emmy nomination. He lives in New York City with his wife and son.
