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 magical twist by taking refuge in her own paradise – her imagination.

Of German-Dominican descent, questions of belonging have been a driving force in her filmic exploration. Her ability to bend genres and seamlessly navigate between formats is often fueled by a focus to shift our gaze and rework historical injustice.

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,Oaxaca Filmfest, Triennale Milano, Museo Italiano Audiovisivo e Cinema.
Her debut short The Prophetess has won Athens Short Film Festival and Dumbo Film Festival amongst others.

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.
