Apolonia, Apolonia (2022)

Feature documentary

My Role: Film editor

Synopsis:  When Danish filmmaker Lea Glob first met Apolonia Sokol in 2009, she appeared to be leading a storybook life.  Over the years, Lea kept returning to film Apolonia as she sought her place in the art world, grappling with the agonies and joys of womanhood, the relationships with others and her own body and creation. 13 years on, the two women continue to reflect on each other's paths in this mesmerizing film about art, love, motherhood, sexuality, representation and how to succeed in a world dominated by patriarchy, capitalism, and war, without losing oneself.
