I creatively express my fascination with people’s stories by making biographical documentary films. My films show how real people have found the courage to face life’s challenges and the ways they manage to grow from their experiences. My films have been described as deeply intimate meditations on what it means to endure worthwhile struggles, to grow from experiences, and to find the creative choices that transform our difficult journeys into opportunities for healing. My films have won awards at major film festivals and screened nationally on CBC television.
My latest film, currently in post production, asks the question "how do you choose to live your life if your parents were Nazis?" The film will take viewers to the heart of this dilemma for three Nazi scion who happen to be leading figures within their local Jewish communities.
Currently in post-production with expected release in early 2015.
