This powerful story was brought to the world on the eve of the Sochi Winter Olympics. Hunted tells the story of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in Russia in 2014, their struggle against homophobia, and the daily beatings they endure.

As part of a great team, I picked up on the visual narrative of each of the films’ characters, neither flinching from nor sensationalising this appalling story. I played an integral part in shaping the narrative in order to tell their stories in the most compelling way.

This film had an amazing response stateside when it had a cinema release with HBO Documentaries. It has been entered for a Peabody award, an International Emmy award and for a US Emmy Craft Award.
