Major project:

A short experimental documentary film about life, death and love with the author's father.


  • I am a filmmaker interested in the power of the psyche and often draw on personal experiences to explore this. Within this area I am curious about different ways of using real experiences or stories. I love the juxtaposition of a performed, directed reality. I like to explore a space that emerges between the real and unreal, directed and improvised, and separation of audio and video.
