Development and humanitarian worker turning into filmmaker. Completed MA in documentary practice 3 years ago, now making films with development and humanitarian themes. Currently making a series of films about post-earthquake urban reconstruction in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Two films finished to date; extracts of the second film on my Vimeo page (first film available but please send me an email). The aim of these films is to document the progress of a humanitarian programme from the perspective of people living in the area, for learning and accountability purposes. The documentary process will continue until after the aid agency has finished implementation and left the country.
I'm interested in making films that give space to community members to tell their stories in their own way, rather than through the lens of the organization. My first 24 minute film, 'Chulachuli' was shot in July 2009 and focuses on a village in SE Nepal.
