Marielle Nitoslawska graduated from the renowned Polish National Film School in Lodz in 1984, and began teaching in the Film Production Program at the Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema in 1989. As a director and a cinematographer, she has shot over fifty films that have been exhibited at numerous international film festivals. Her research and studio practice focus on new approaches to documentary, on the relationship of production structures and technologies to cinematic discourse, and on cinematography as a determinant mode of authorship. Nitoslawska's recently acclaimed documentaries Sky Bones and Bad Girl explore the undercurrents of our relationship to nature, sexuality and mortality. Her extensive filmography, produced in Poland, Mexico and Canada, includes numerous films about art and reflects her preoccupation with the cross-breeding of cultures.
