I was born in Timisoara/Romania in 1981 and was raised in Romania and Germany. My background in
Fine Art, Documentary Photography, Philosophy and Music influences my approach to visual storytelling.
From 2009 til 2017 I did my studies in cinematography at the University for Television and Film Munich.
I have always been searching for a holistic approach to the people in front and behind my camera and I
appreciate the visual expression that emerges from this approach - no matter if I work in fiction or
documentary. Anyways the borders between documentary and fiction are constantly floating and somehow
the one cannot exist without the other: In documentary it´s about how to focus and fictionalise in a world full
of chaos, in fiction it´s about finding authenticity in an artificial setting and inbetween there's lands of possibilities.
I love to work on projects that aim to bring awareness to women´s rights issues around the globe and I´m
convinced that nowadays we still might talk about and fight for what I here call "women´s rights issues" but
in the future we will realize that women´s rights issues are our all issues and by taking this responsibility,
we will empower ourselves to move forward into a future of dignity and respect for all beings.
I live in Berlin, Munich and in the countryside somewhere in the middle of Germany.
I work all around the globe and I´m a member of "Cinematographinnen" - Women Cinematographer's Network.
