Together we can disrupt the social paradigm.

Audiovisual director by profession, Laura’s specialty is documentary cinema, which she uses as a tool to invite reflection.
Her career developed between Barcelona and Madrid, working in TV for channels such as Barça TV, Telecinco and Cuatro. She quickly realised that if she wanted to get the stories that deserved our attention out there, she’d need to do so independently.
She has since co-directed more than a dozen films on topics ranging from body shaming to domestic abuse and the power of creative expression and has been awarded numerous laurels from film festivals around the world.
