“As a director, I pride myself on my ability to communicate a distinct vision, to problem solve with levity and to create a safe space of collaboration, respect, curiosity and inspiration. I’m always drawn to moments of real human intimacy and through filmmaking exploring magical realism. I’m passionate about giving women a voice and opening perspectives. There’s nothing more thrilling than to share a story of humanity in an authentic, unique and artistic way.”
