Writer / Director
Sylvie’s films are steeped in poetic realism, like a delicate recording of the emotional conditions of humanity, its virtues and weaknesses. They often inherit a mythical twist by taking refuge in her imagination. Of German-Dominican descent, questions of belonging have been a driving force in her cinematic exploration. Fluent across genres and formats, her work is often fueled by a focus on reimagining freedom and telling stories of resilience and moral urgency.

Her films have screened at festivals and institutions worldwide, including Black Star Film Festival, BAM, LA Film Forum, New York African Film Festival, Seoul International Film Festival,Pacific Film Archive, Triennale Milano, Museo Italiano Audiovisivo e Cinema.
Her debut short The Prophetess has won Athens Short Film Festival and Dumbo Film Festival amongst others.

As a commercial director with 10 years of experience, Sylvie has worked with some of the world’s leading brands and artists like Nike, Lufthansa, DAZN, OnePlus, Bose, My/Mochi, Ayede, Dr.Hauschka, The xx.

Sylvie was recently selected for Playlab Films Creator's Lab with Apichatpong Weerasethakul in Mexico (2023). 
She is currently developing her first feature film Rio Masacre and several narrative short films.
