Project Updates


8 May 2013 was present at Catch/Tell/Transform, a documentary film workshop in Manila (The Philippines) organised in the framework of Creative Encounters: Cultural Partnerships between Asia and Europe. This unique initiative gathers young promising filmmakers from Southeast Asia to enhance their skills and build new audiences for their work.
