Who we are

We are a team of young ladies who share a passion for storytelling and our cameras that we once carried in our red granny cart. The founders, Elettra Fiumi and Lea Khayata, met while getting a masters at Columbia University’s School of Journalism. They hold five passports: American, Italian, French, Swiss and Lebanese.
