Hi! I'm Jessica, an editor and writer on film based in the UK. Whilst living in Berlin, I founded Wasteland, an academic-leaning online journal with an aesthetic lens on film and visual culture. Since then, I have written about films for various publications, including MUBI Notebook and Cineccentric.
Since 2018, I have been the creative director and editor of Wasteland and its corresponding monthly newsletter. Recent newsletter themes have included 'performance', 'masks', 'alternative animation', and 'placelessness'.
My research interests include but are not limited to aesthetics, spectatorship, 60s and 70s cinema, documentary, silent film, and shorts. I will begin a postgraduate degree in film aesthetics at the University of Oxford later this year.
