Landau produced over forty films, and won several awards, including an Emmy for “Paul Jacobs and the Nuclear Gang” and the Edgar Allan Poe Award for Assassination on Embassy Row, an investigation into the 1976 murders of Chilean Ambassador Orlando Letelier and his colleague, Ronni Moffitt. Landau wrote fourteen books including a book of poems, My Dad Was Not Hamlet. He won the George Polk Award for Investigative Reporting, the First Amendment Award, and the Letelier-Moffitt Human Rights Award. In 2008, the Chilean government presented him with the Bernardo O’Higgins Award for his human rights work, and the Cuban government gave him the “Amistad” award in 2013.
