Jordana Goldmann received her Master’s degree in Visual Anthropology from the renowned Freie Universität in Berlin, Germany in 2013. During her graduate studies, she was involved in a medical research project at the University of Florida during which she created a documentary film portraying the everyday struggles of children and youth with cystic fibrosis. Her diverse background in visual and cultural studies forms the academic basis of her very personal and empathic approach to show how individuals find strength and the will to live in the most challenging of circumstances.
