Soliana is a first-generation Eritrean - South African. Having experienced life through various lenses, she's learnt to develop a strong sense of story. 'Understanding that despite all our differences, we're all fundamentally the same. We all want peace, love, and to feel valued and heard. Wherever you go on this planet, you will always meet people with dreams and stories they want to share. That's the secret to great storytelling. Understanding.' Soliana has worked as a producer and scriptwriter in the South African Film and Television industry for the past few years. She aspires to create co-production across the African continent and bring our uniquely African stories to the rest of the world with an emphasis on showing the beautiful capabilities and strengths that lie in African stories.
