I curate Divine Lens, which is an online film series, designed to promote the work of women documentary filmmakers from around the world. I've been living in New York for the past 19 years, programming and producing independent film and video projects. I founded Argot Pictures, an independent film distribution & production company in 2005. I’m an Associate Programmer for the Tribeca Film Festival. I look at more films in a year than most people do in a lifetime.
