Sylvie Weber has told stories from before she understood her own. German-Dominican by birth, she was confronted with questions around identity that have motivated her exploration of humanity, its virtues and weaknesses, on film.

Studying in India opened the door to greater depth in both her film work and her approach to life. Sylvie's focus has been the empowerment of women through film and the elevation of black and brown stories, especially those that highlight and rework historical injustice.
