I am a versatile self-shooter filmmaker with an intimate documentary approach and strong cinematic sensibility. My studies in social anthropology and my career as a photographer and community worker have brought me to work across the globe, from Liberia to Colombia, from the Caribbean to South Africa, discovering a range of topics.
My career as a filmmaker started with my long term project about the Colombian peace process while working in London with a group of women and I quickly began building my portfolio self-directing short NGO’s documentaries and promotional / campaign videos. I am currently post-producing a few projects and particularly interested in working as part of a creative production team to direct documentaries that focus on solutions and empowering stories that inspire hope and action (Hope based communication), especially around issues related to the arts, environment, sustainability, indigenous traditions and rights, spirituality, shamanism and healing and nature.
My work has mainly been focussed around human rights, women and memory. While filming and interviewing, I enjoy working with small cameras and little equipment as I don’t like to be intrusive.I am very discreet and respectful and have an extensive experience in working with people who have faced trauma or that may be at risk as I am known for having a great sensitivity, listening and therapeutic ear, and empathy. Ethics and consent are key to my work and I like to involve the subjects and interviewees of my documentaries in the process, including the post-production part.
