What do you love about your work?
I came from a family of strong women and it shows in my photography and the characters I write. Empowering and encouraging women is a mission for me and I love that.
What is your vision for yourself, female filmmakers, or the media industry in 2020?
I really like to make a short film I wrote about undocumented Brazilian immigrants here in Massachusetts.
What’s one way you would suggest people “Change the Lens”?
There’s a lot of competent filmmakers out there, some doing great work, some taking baby steps inside of the boys club. I say keep going, we are here to stay, let’s promote each other by spreading the news of your project, let’s support each other anyway we can.
What advice would you give to a new female filmmaker?
This is our time. Let’s hold hands and go.
What film or series are looking forward to watching this year? Why?
Wonder Woman 1984 directed by Patty Jenkins. Because it’s a empowering story made by a director I respect and performed by an actress I admire.
Attending any film festivals or events, and why you are attending them.
I attend any chance I have. It’s a great way to meet people with the same interest and be inspired by their stories and creativity.
How can your fans find you!?
