Erica moved to Scotland in 2019, where she completed the MFA in Documentary Film Directing at the University of Edinburgh in 2021. She is currently 1/2 of Imprint, a documentary film collective focused on embodiment in documentary filmmaking practice (@imprint.documentaries).
She has a background in cultural anthropology and fine art, having completed an MA in Medical Anthropology from the University of Heidelberg, Germany, and a certificate in Conceptual Studio Arts at Metafora Studios in Barcelona, Spain.
Her practice takes the form of essay, social issue, hybrid, and experimental documentary, as well as video/multimedia installations and visual ethnographic research. She is passionate about interdisciplinarity and has a wide variety of topical interests, having produced visual work and conducted social research around the world since 2015.
Specifically, she is interested in the health/culture relationship, the body, intimacy, and phenomenology, human/environmental relationships, and the transformative experiences of art, dance, and creativity. She is currently developing a number of short experimental and documentary films, producing short documentaries for local directors, and conceptualizing her first feature length documentary.
Her emails are open to collaborations as a director in the UK, USA, and Europe, as well as to inquiries about collaborating on interdisciplinary art and research projects.
