Maria Morina (b.1982) went to St. Petersburg State University for International Relations before shifting to photography and visual storytelling. She was participating in online seminars run by Objective Reality Foundation for emerging photographers in Russia, when she met Olga Kravets and Oksana Yushko, Moscow-based photographers. Three of them decided to make a project together, shortly after they founded Verso, which has since grown into an interdisciplinary production company.
Since 2009 Maria Morina, Olga Kravets and Oksana Yushko, have been working on a cross-media project titled Grozny: Nine Cities. The idea was inspired by Thornton Wilder’s book, Theophilus North, which gave them the concept to explore the aftermath of two wars in Chechnya. Each specific aspect was considered a “level” hidden within Grozny. The project has been presented in a form of a book, a web documentary, and an installation. It has won several international awards, including PDN Photo-Annual Contest, multimedia category, 2012, Bayeux-Calvados Awards for War Correspondents, web-journalism, 2014, and Luma Rencontres Dummy Book Award Arles, 2017.
While working with different media on the Grozny: Nine Cities project, Maria has turned to film-making. Her short film "Nizhny Tagil Youth" was selected at the festival Rencontres Internationales Paris / Berlin / Madrid 2011-2012. Her first full-length documentary film "Don't press stop", about Rap musicians in Nizhny Tagil, a gigantic open-air factory in Russia, was released in 2017. It was selected for Lussas Documentary Film Festival, France and Russian Open Documentary Film Festival Artdocfest in 2017 and broadcasted on Russian independent television station Dozhd in 2019.
Maria Morina has participated in numerous exhibitions and festivals in Russia and abroad. Her works are held in the Les Rencontres d’Arles and The Open Society Foundation collections.

I am a Chilean documentary filmmaker, director of photography and journalist who tells stories about extraordinary women from underprivileged communities seldom featured in the mainstream media.
My intimate approach to subjects allows the viewer to connect with their stories and gaze into images their naked eyes wouldn't normally see up close. My cinematography style looks for improvised action, the type that surges from the mere inertia of life, allowing the audience to engage in a sensorial journey.
I'm currently living in the Chicago area where I'm pursuing an MFA in Documentary Media at Northwestern University. Previously, I worked as a broadcast journalist for 7 years in Chile’s most prestigious tv stations, where I travelled through Latin America covering breaking news and doing Features on the communities those current events affected. This experience led me to documentary filmmaking.

HENRY OGUNJIMI is a Documentary Filmmaker/Director/Producer/ Videographer/Video Editor and Photographer. He recently completed his graduate studies in Journalism at the New York University, with interests in news and documentaries. His works cover social and political issues as well as personal perspectives.
He recently completed his first independent film “MARKED”, a documentary that talks about what is left of an ancient cultural practice of tribal marks among the Yoruba people from Nigeria and his personal experience growing up as a little boy with marks on his face.
Before coming to New York, he was a producer at Nigeria’s number one private television station, Channels Television Inc.
Back in 2016, he completed a documentary “From Benin City to Italy” which reveals the problem of human trafficking in Nigeria, the risks young men and women take to get to Europe in search of greener pastures, and the realities they encounter when they eventually arrive their destinations abroad.
The project took him from the ancient city of Benin in Nigeria’s south-south region through some parts of the Sahara Desert and eventually to Italy.
The broadcast of this piece in Nigeria generated a lot of reactions and enlightened a great number of people.
This work was inspired by his drive to tell the story from an African’s eye because most documentaries on human trafficking had been done by foreign journalists from Europe and America.
In the summer of 2012, He and two colleagues from Channels Tv visited the United States to produce a six-part series titled “Community Policing and Law Enforcement in a Free Society: The American Example”. Back home, these series triggered reforms in the Nigerian Police Force and has kept the issue of state/community policing on the front burner of most national security discuss.
He is from the southwest of Nigeria but was born and raised in the northwest. He speaks two local languages, Yoruba and Hausa, which gives him an advantage in his line of duty.
His interest in journalism dates back to his childhood days when he discovered his knack for asking questions, finding answers, speaking and telling stories.
He started at Channels television in 2007 and has over the years developed skills in video shooting, video editing, scriptwriting, voiceover, broadcast news, and documentary production.
He also loves to fly aerial imaging drones.
