A short demo reel specifically highlighting sections from films Emma has directed.


She is drawn to telling unique, socially driven narratives, which serve to critique the power stuctures of our society. Emma also aims to convey complex imagery and feelings through the creation of intimate visual moments; her films are palpable slices of life, realistic events that are shown in ways that defy the mundanity of everyday existence.

Her previous cinematic works have dealt with themes such as addiction, mental illness, unexpected pregnancy and toxic masculinity, as well as the generally oppressive nature of idealized gender roles.
