Sophie is a British American film director, documentary cinematographer and writer who has produced and shot films in the Antarctic, at the North Pole and in the Himalayas. Her documentary films include "77 Below" and experimental "Come to the Edge", shot on the Ross Ice Shelf in Antarctica and featuring artist Lita Albuquerque. The award winning "Talking to the Air: The Horses of the Last Forbidden Kingdom" was shot on the border with Tibet in the high Himalaya. Sophie's debut narrative feature film was "Dogstar", a tragic love story between an otherworldly recluse and a misfit junkie and was billed as a rustic Colorado update of O. Henry's The Gift of the Magi. Critics described it as "pleasingly sensuous" and a "well-crafted, winsome fairy tale".
Sophie co-founded Shakti Pictures - a documentary film production company with a social justice focus, which has produced three films in Nepal - "Daughters of the Curved Moon", "Talking to the Air" and "Pink Tiffany".
Sophie also co-owns and runs Horsefly Films Rare Equine Trust, a production company based in Los Angeles. As well as promotional films for world class equine clientele worldwide, Horsefly Films are producing a series of documentaries focused on rare horses and vanishing equine cultures. Their award winning films "Path to Glory", "Tarpan", "Of Gods and Kings" and "Talking to the Air" are available at www.rareequinetrust.com. They also produce commercial work for NGOs and commercial enterprises.
