Marta's story

I am a self-shooting director, originally from Sardinia, currently based in Edinburgh.

I have graduated from a BA in Film Studies and English Literature in University College Dublin in 2019, with a First Class Honours degree.

Following my graduation, I moved back to Sardinia where I worked as a casting assistant, while developing a documentary for the humanitarian society of Carbonia. The documentary focused on recentring women’s experiences in the narratives of the mining communities in the South of Sardinia.

I have worked on documentaries that focused on gender based and linguistic oppression, as well as mental health and embodiment. I am passionate about developing and supporting creative and experimental documentaries, that focus on universal themes told through a personal perspective.

I am currently enrolled in the MA in Film Directing at Edinburgh College of Art and a participant of the SDI’s New Voices programme 2021.
