She was raised in The Hague and in 2015 she graduated from The Nederlandse FilmAcademie with her award winning film "Tarikat"; a short doc about Sufism. "Tarikat" is currently still making it's way around the festival circuit. Today, she is working on her upcoming documentary, "Death of Darkness," about the installation of electricity in Illaut, Northern Kenya. In this episode, we talk about connecting to the essence of a story and the translation from feeling to work- the creation of "Tarikat" and building trust with your subjects, the impact of silence, and we discuss her upcoming film "Death of Darkness."
