Jessie is an award winning director from Cape Town. As someone who grew up in the theatre world, her experience with performance has informed her ability to work across different genres and mediums. Thematically, her work often stems from ideas surrounding girlhood, and coming of age stories.
Her films have screened at multiple international film festivals including Doc NYC, AFI Docs, MoMA Doc Fortnight and Visions Du Reel, and have received Vimeo Staff Picks. Her latest film, Drummies, was acquired by the New Yorker, and she is currently in post-production on her latest documentary, which is being funded by the NFVF & DSAC.
