Hello :) 
I am a director & producer from Cape Town. My work revolves around spaces and memory filtered through a lens of hybrid filmmaking that blends elements of fiction and documentary together. Some of my short films have screened at international film festivals, including MoMA Doc Fortnight, BFI Film Festival, Visions Du Reel and Durban International Film Festival. 
In 2017 I was one of 12 women trailblazers to be named as a ‘Marie Claire Future Shaper’ in partnership with Marie Claire Magazine and Audi, and in 2018 I made it onto the Mail & Guardian ‘200 Young South African’ list. My documentary projects have been in the official selection for the IDFA Academy (2018), the Durban Film Mart (2017) and the Visions Du Reel Pitching Forum (2017). In 2018, I was selected amongst 19 other African filmmakers as a Berlinale Talent at the Durban International Film Festival. I am currently busy with my first feature documentary ('The Home') that is being funded by the National Film and Video Foundation (NFVF) and co-produced by Picturescope Films.
