Director Biography - Thérèse Jordan

After a long pause in filmmaking of 25 years, where, as a single parent, she concentrated on raising two children whilst earning a living, Thérèse picked up filmmaking again 7 years ago, caught up with the digital revolution and has since embarked on developing technical filmmaking skills, directing films and writing screenplays.

Graduating with a Masters Degree in Photography, awarded with merit, from the University of Gloucestershire in 2019, Thérèse started exploring artist filmmaking to expand her photographic ideas and knowledge, to be more creative visually on film.

Truthful performances and symbolic imagery tell stories without the need for words, that go straight to the heart of our humanity to connect with the truth in all of us, rendering us transformed as audiences and as human beings. Such is the power of film. I am passionate about it’s transformative nature.
