All her previous five films feature Parkour Generations freerunners’s as not only are they the most dedicated and passionate Traceurs she has come across but they embody the values of Parkour in their lives.

Having trained with them herself personally they have empowered her immeasurabley through parkour.

The narrative in her Parkour films are a collaborative physiological journey between herself and the Freerunner’s featured within the films.
