As a narrative filmmaker, Mikaela is drawn to stories that deal with our fragile humanity. Her films examine the manner in which the struggles and pain of life are intimately woven together with the beauty and hope of our human experience. Her films touch on the darkness and suffering in the world - and in our own hearts - while anchored in the truest hope and deepest healing.
