the colourful life of scientists and artists

This beautiful initiative produced by the Belgian NGO, ella vzw, consists of a series of video-portraits of women with migration background, that work in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics)  in Belgium, particularly in the region of Flanders. In this project I was in charge of the direction, videography and editing.

vis-à-vis - surviving the lockdown

Together with the multicultural collective based in Frankfurt,  "Plattform Aurora", produced with the financial support from the Hessisches Ministerium für Wissenschaft und Kunst I had the chance of co-writing and directing this short film about a bicultural couple facing the pandemic Covid-19.

It's just starting its way to film festivals, waiting to for its premiere. 

malas compañías - a story of a toxic love

"Malas compañías", created in collaboration with two dancers from the Mexican dance company Danza Kaana, has just finished its post production phase, ready to come out to the world. 

This dance film depicts some of the dynamics that take place inside a toxic relationship. It's inspired in the very real struggle of being stuck in a vicious circle. 

A total must watch to find a new perspective from our current or past relationships.
