Born in Luxembourg in 1980, Laura graduated with a Masters in Film Studies at the University of Paris 1 – Sorbonne and a Postgraduate Diploma in Directing at the National Film and Television School, London.

After 8 years abroad, she moves back to her hometown in 2007 and starts building the Luxembourg context into her work. She writes and directs 2 shorts, Senteurs (2008, 15 min, 35 mm), screened in many festivals worldwide, and
Double Saut (2010, 15 min, 35 mm) yet to be released.
In 2009, she writes and directs the transdisciplinary theatre play Luxtime – Jacques Tati revisited which, after public acclaim, is shown at the Avignon Theatre Festival in 2010. Laura is currently developing two features: Desperate Kingdom of Love, her first feature as a writer/director and Melusina TS, a film for children co-produced with Germany and scheduled for 2011.

Laura’s work is characterized by a strong interest in human frailty, in the intimate and the individual – close-up character studies dealing with where the characters themselves wouldn’t want you to go.
