Bio:

Rosa is an award-winning filmmaker and artist based in London. In her practice she explores movement and gesture as a core, using the human body and elements from reality to interpret the workings of the subconscious mind. She has been drawing since she can remember and working as a professional artist for the last 9 years. During this time, her work has been exhibited in places around the world. She started experimenting with moving image in 2017 and obtained an MA in Animation from University of the Arts London. Her first animated film In our skin holds an extensive list of international festival selections as well as Best Animation, Best Experimental and Best European Short awards.
