To look at movies only from a theoretical point of view (Theatre, Film and Media Studies in Vienna and Utrecht, Netherlands) was at some point not enough, not anymore. In order to learn how to tell stories on my own I studied at the Film Academy Vienna, first Screenwriting (with Professor Götz Spielmann), then after two years applied again, this time for Directing (with professors Wolfgang Murnberger and Michael Haneke). Finished both. After several short films, BREAKING THE ICE is my first feature film. I want to make movies that entertain and move emotionally, shake you up and leave you yearning. I focus on feminist topics as well as on socio-critical and -political topics.
