Eline Gehring

Viewing the world through the lens of a camera awakened in Eline a desire to make films that focus on women.

Eline Gehring talks to us about her favorite films.

And about her path to film, which has taken her to St. Petersburg, Cairo and South Africa, among other places.

ELINE GEHRING began her career in 2006 as a camerawoman and editor for German reporting in Paris, Prague, Kiev and Berlin. She shot a documentary for the German Bundestag in St Petersburg and worked for Deutsche Welle in Cairo in 2008. Her stations also took her to South Africa, where she spent a year in 2011 shooting short films, documentaries and social commercials for NGOs.
