Even though 2020 had some surprises I am grateful to be able to share that in the end of November I graduated from Leiden University and received a Master of Science in Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology, specializing in Visual Ethnography.

My thesis consists of a film and written part. I conducted my research in the Peruvian Amazon concerning the relation and communication between humans and plants. For anyone who is interested in a peek into my project, I have produced a trailer of the film ‘Amongst the Plants’.

For the start of 2021 I am honored to share that my first great news of the year is that the film has been selected to be screened at the Indian Folklore Film Festival in Thrissur, India.
