Since July, I've been working on Raisers, a feature-length documentary project, together with my co-directing partner Jason B. Kohl.

Raisers tells the story of a trio of convicted murderers, who struggle to transform an unruly puppy into a disciplined seeing-eye dog over the course of a year. In the process, they chart a path to an uncertain redemption...

Woof!

ArtistS' Residency by Nora Mandray

I'm spending the month of September at Soaring Gardens. This remote artists' residency notably consists of a Church reconverted into artists studios, tucked between working farms. While here, I'm busy editing two new documentary projects – and playing badminton with the goats.


My new project, awarded French funding by Nora Mandray

I'm honored to be funded by two different French boards the CNC (French Film Institute) and the Region Aquitaine to write and conduct field research for my next transmedia project.

"True Wheel" selected by the British Council by Nora Mandray

As part of the BFI Flare Festival, my short "True Wheel" got picked for the #FiveFilms4Freedom initiative. 

Together with four other films, "True Wheel" was made available online by the British Film Institute, for free, for people all around the world to see through the BFI Player. The British Council promoted the films to millions of people through its global network including in countries where these images are difficult or almost impossible to access. 

Thanks to this amazing initiative, "True Wheel" got mentioned in The Guardian (online and on paper!)
