About the Director

Isa Benn is an award-winning filmmaker, screenwriter, playwright, multimedia artist and creator. She approaches each project with a sensitivity and perspective that is as resonant as it is unique. In light of several highly visual sensory “handicaps”, including synesthesia, Asperger’s and ideasthesia, she has found a mode of exploring the human experiences that is unparalleled. Isa is uniquely able to connect to and penetrate her audience’s emotional barriers and facilitate a collective cognitive experience that leaves audiences feeling connected, healed and with greater awareness of a world outside of themselves.
