Sometimes armies and guns start revolutions, other times it’s the courage of a 12-year-old girl.

JOURNEY TO FREEDOM

An original screenplay inspired by true events.

While living in India, I heard stories about people escaping persecution in Burma during WW2.  These stories inspired this screenplay.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Expect complex female protagonists (both young and old) on the brink of a life-changing experience.  They will endure journeys that are unusual, tragic, uplifting and transformative.

 

Expect dramatic stories that are emotional, personal, a bit exotic, a little supernatural, empowering, and historical.  Expect stories set in unusual locations, during significant moments in history.

MY SCREENWRITING JOURNEY

I was commissioned to co-write the Indian historical drama, Route 68, an independent feature film in development.  The short film I wrote, directed and produced, Blue Willow, screened at the Berlin Film Festival and 26+ festivals in 11 countries.

Screenwriting is a natural progression for me, after working in television for 15 years as well as making a bunch of independent short films and theatre shows. 

I care deeply about understanding the human heart, how people connect, and why people hurt each other.  I like to write stories about injustice, history, true events, family dysfunction, and love.  

 

Most of all, I'm passionate about contributing to more complex minority storytelling because growing up I never saw films about women of colour like myself.  I feel part of a worldwide movement to end inequality by telling powerful stories.

DIRECTOR

I direct television promos (adverts) and short films.

 

My award-winning short screened in over 26 festivals in 11 countries, including the Berlin Film Festival.

SEE FILM EXCERPTS

I believe films are where we negotiate our humanity.  They connect us.  I think great films help us to understand those feelings we often find hard to define within ourselves. When we connect with those feelings onscreen, it's magic!

I love films by Pedro Almodovar, Steven Spielberg, Wong Kar-wai, Amma Asante.
