Cristina directs, self-shoots and edits on promotional films and documentaries for London and US based companies.
Cristina’s most notable work as a director is a compelling documentary series of 16 films shot for the charity Amantani UK, titled ‘Meet My World’. The films enable a group of children living in the Andes of Peru, to share share skills that they want to pass on. The films are quite beautiful ‘how to’ and have been showcased in cinemas around the world.
