Sexability is my current animation film project. It deals with the topic of sexuality and disability. Sexability is a collaborative animation film project with artists of
Thikwa Werkstatt & Film Production Balance Film

“The project approaches a reserved subject with great sensitivity. Sexability finds ways to break taboos and myths related to the sexuality of disabled people. As an artistic medium, the animated film is suited to deal with the topic in an artistically and qualitative manner – visual and informative, without being exposing. An important project that makes an essential contribution to participation and inclusion”   Jury statement, The Power of The Arts Prize

Iktamuli is an animated autobiographical short film. The film depicts thoughts and feelings of a mother with her so called mentally disabled son. The film was screened in over fifty national and international film festivals, won prizes and most important: it helped me to turn self-pity into understanding.
