Spinning Aubergines, Talking Genitals and the Oldest Women on Earth

An honest account of her creative process both technical and conceptual. From her love of music video, animated documentary and the mixing of traditional and digital animation techniques to the formation of her first short film 'Private Parts'. This animated documentary (involving real voice recorded interviews are visualised as talking vaginas and penises) was a real turning point for her career. She will explain us where her desire to make it came from and the process. In the summer of 2017 her little sister was hospitalised with Anorexia for the 3rd time, after 8 years of struggling with the disease. She will discuss how witnessing her sisters' struggling got her thinking about beauty ideals and examine how fast the definition of beauty changes resulting on her film for International Women's Day 2018 'What is Beauty?'. She will finish with a screening of her latest film 'Ugly'.
