Anna is a documentary filmmaker and photographer. Her work revolves around working with individuals to tell empowering stories about women and people in the LGBT community, and exploring the causes and consequences of immigration. She is interested in how we create identity and find community, particularly in the context of religion. She is currently directing her first feature documentary film. Anna's work has taken her to India, Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, Singapore, Puerto Rico, Panama, Cuba, México, and across the United States. She lived and worked in Cambodia for three years, where she began a long-term project documenting the local Jewish communities of South and Southeast Asia, as well as the family who ran the Chabad center in Cambodia. Anna's connection to Judaism comes from her mother and grandfather, who tie Judaism to history, culture, and social justice. Her own Judaism came into sharper focus when she lived in Cambodia and sought out the Jewish community there. She was nominated for a 2016 News and Documentary Emmy Award, and a short documentary for Time Magazine was named a Vimeo Staff Pick in 2018 and awarded the the Judge's and People's Choice awards in the News and Politics category of the Webby's. She collaborates with publishers like Univision Noticias, Al Jazeera, TIME, NBC Universal, and Blue Chalk Media. She is an Adelante Fellow with the International Women’s Media Foundation, holds a B.A. in women/gender/sexuality studies from Washington University in St. Louis and an M.A. in visual journalism from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.
