Director Biography - Janne Vuorela

I am a Journalist and an independent filmmaker based in Berlin. My goal is to stay truly independent and anti-commercial and only tackle topics that truly inspire and interest me. This has led me to explore wide range of themes from tattoos to sex work to indigenous etnofusion music to extreme black metal refugees and heartcore music that researches bipolar disorder.
