Thus, adding a novel focus to the field of conventional film studies. Her current research project, titled: Visual Storytelling “Qu’est-ce que la mise en scène?” investigates further the cinematographer’s role in the cinematographic discourse of a narrative film.

Research interests

Coloured light and it’s impact on the cinematographic discourse
