Sylvie has told stories with vivid imagination since before she understood her own.
Of German-Dominican descent, questions of belonging have been a driving force in her filmic exploration of humanity, its virtues and weaknesses.
Her ability to seamlessly navigate between formats like narrative fiction, music video, documentary or commercials are fuelled by a focus to amplify underrepresented voices and rework historical injustice. Sylvie’s work begs us to shift our gaze by challenging our usual point of inquiry. “The Prophetess”, her debut short, has won and traveled several film festivals around the world.

Awards:

Dumbo Film Festival - Best Short Documentary for “The Prophetess”
