Emily’s films, video installations, and transmedia projects bridge feminist ethnographic filmmaking with the power of impact-oriented storytelling. She is the co-founder of the social and environmental justice organization Rhiza Collective and ethnographic filmmaking collective Ethnocine, and a member of the Asian American Documentary Network. Emily has directed several collaborative short films including Get By (2014), Nobel Nok Dah (2015), and For My Art (2016), which have explored issues of solidarity and labor, womanhood and identity in the refugee experience, and the gendered spectatorship of performance art. Her research, media projects, and activist engagements are largely rooted in Thailand and Myanmar, where she has spent a decade, first as a human rights campaigner and trainer, and later as a filmmaker and researcher. Emily’s films have been screened in Athens, Chiang Mai, Lisbon, Los Angeles, New York, Paris and Yangon.
