I see my creative process as a kind of research: I’m interested in collaborating with those making the world a more caring, curious and creative place.
With a degree in Anthropology, I have a natural curiosity about the world and how people move through it. I build relationships with individuals & organisations, often spanning years, documenting and translating their stories for a wider audience through film and other digital tools. My projects usually focus on aspects of community, education and culture, but you’ll also find a healthy dose of heritage, activism and climate change.
You can find me tramping around on building sites, in the Swiss mountains with a community of global educators, spending time with artists in their studios, or hanging off the back of a truck in Malawi. If you’re doing good in the world, I’m interested.
When I’m not making films, I’ll be watching them, eating curry, or sweating it out on the dance floor.
If you would like to collaborate on a project, email me on hello @ isayraar.com
