A B O U T  M E

My interest in personal and political transformations led me to gain a Bachelor in Psychology and International Relations, before graduating from Doc Nomads, a travelling film school based in Lisbon, Budapest and Brussels. 

 

Throughout my career I was working as production manager and assistant director in documentary, fiction and advertising, and I was lucky that the projects took me to inspiring places in Africa, Australia, the US and Europe.

 

My work is influenced by fragile environments and the people behind these. 

 

Drawing upon the idea of psychogeography, I am searching for traces, using analogue film to document and explore inner and outer transformations. Inspired by Patrick Keiller, Edward Hollis and Alain Resnais, I made my first experimental documentary VILLA EMPAIN about a museum of contemporary art in Brussels, Belgium.

 

VILLA EMPAIN has premiered at FID Marseille in 2019 and is currently available at MUBI.

 

My current new, personal project brings me back to my roots in the Austrian countryside.
