Isla is a documentary filmmaker, creative producer and visual artist.
She programmes for film festival Sheffield Doc/Fest, has written articles for The Guardian, produced audio installations for London’s Science Museum and developed a 40-minute VR Folk Opera.
Isla has a curiosity for people. Her work challenges cultural stigmas by telling atmospheric stories that question conventions and defy stereotypes. Having been awarded funding in the UK and Denmark, her art and filmmaking explores perceptions of mental health, isolated communities, gender identity and forgotten cultures.
Isla has developed, funded and produced several international documentary and fiction films from religious tolerance in Sierra Leone for Danish TV (DR3), to impact campaign films on child illiteracy, to fictionalised memories of a WW1 nurse. Isla's experience developing and investigating real human stories indicates her humanistic and collaborative approach to projects.
