    Nicola was very lucky that her studies brought her to the Netherlands, Canada and Australia. After graduating in “International Media Management”, she worked in advertising and fiction film productions in Berlin, always fantasizing about making her own films. She realised that her journeys around the world have very much affected her visual language, her perception of stories and the individuals behind them. Shortly after, she commenced her master at DocNomads, a mobile film school taking place in Portugal, Belgium and Hungary. During her studies she made many creative documentary short films, that were well perceived on International Film Festivals and art exhibitions.
