As a participatory observer she brings people into focus, be they individual protagonists or social groups. Her interest lies in unspeakable human experiences. While following her protagonists, she documents memories, rituals, ideologies, and processes of identity formation. Her films do not claim to offer a detailed portrayal or a complete recording of events, focusing instead on subtle social phenomena and structures shaped by communities. Her camera is persistent. The shots are long, depicting interiors and landscapes as though they were still-lifes. In the process of shooting, she dives into specific contexts, confronting her own biases, utilising ambiguity, and questioning the authenticity of moving images.
