Althea arrived on the PROJECT: ICE post-production scene in late 2012 bringing international, artistic, interdisciplinary skills and perspectives, stellar project management skills, and an eagerness to learn about the inner-workings of documentary film making. She is interested in the power of storytelling and the use of film and arts for social change.
