“Natashja is a terrific representative of the contemporary filmmaker. She’s ambitious, creative and hardworking – yet humble and always at the service of her stories and subjects.”
“Natashja is clearly imaginative, tremendously efficient and hardworking. Other than having all the essential talents of a good filmmaker, she can solve problems and is very open to feedback regarding her work. She’s the hallmark of a good leader and team player.”
“If you are ever looking for a Creative Producer, Natashja is your find. She has the art of making the impossible possible effortlessly, and with humour and grace. She has a keen sense for the story, and can craft a gripping tale from absoloutley inane footage. Her minimalistic approach creates a vast space in her films that enable the viewer to enter, listen, look, and connect with their silences.”
