CINEMATOGRAPHER: Aaron Kopp

Under the guidance of acclaimed South African storyteller, Gcina Mhlophe, five orphaned children from Swaziland collaborate to craft a collective fairytale drawn from their darkest memories and brightest dreams. Their fictional character, Liyana, is brought to life in innovative animated artwork as she embarks on a perilous quest to rescue her young twin brothers. The children’s real and imagined worlds begin to converge, and they must choose what kind of story they will tell – in fiction and in their own lives.

Aaron Kopp is an award-winning filmmaker and Emmy-nominated cinematographer. He shot and co-produced the Academy Award-winning documentary, Saving Face about acid attacks in Pakistan. He was cinematographer for the Sundance Audience Award-winning and Academy Award-nominated film, The Hunting Ground, about sexual assault on college campuses. Aaron and Amanda make their feature directorial debut with Liyana.

Amanda Kopp is an award-winning filmmaker, photographer and artist. She was producer and cinematographer for the short film, Likhaya, which won a Golden Palm, People’s Choice, and Best Documentary awards at international festivals. She was the recipient of the 2018 Emerging Female Filmmaker Award from the Oxford Film Festival.
