DIRECTOR. CINEMATOGRAPHER. PRODUCER.
Emily is a documentary filmmaker and director of photography based in Baltimore, MD. From story development to cinematography, she loves every element of creating meaningful, and moving visual stories that have the power to connect strangers, communities and countries around the globe. She believes telling stories from overlooked perspectives has the power to bring truth to power, expand empathy and inspire us individually. From dismal medical treatment in Palestine to the experiences of Gen Z with climate change, she's drawn to people-first stories that can illuminate greater systemic issues.
Her films have been selected and screened at national film festivals such as San Francisco Film Festival, Doclands, Big Sky Film Festival, Hot Springs, and the Detroit Free Press Film Festival. Her work has been supported by the California Humanities and Berkeley Film Foundation and can be seen on The New Yorker, Frontline, VICE, Motherboard, The Huffington Post, and POV, among other outlets. She's a proud pup mom to her dog, Bob Barker.
