 is a Swiss born Producer/Director/Camerawoman/Video-Journalist 


Over the last 20 years, independently and in several languages with no outside financial assistance, Charlotte has written, shot, produced and edited nearly 20documentaries on Human rights, environment and woman's issues. The short versions have all be sold to and aired on the cultural 3sat-TV for German Languages (ZDF, Swiss TV, ORF)

Charlotte spent over 40 years travelling the world as an Independent.
First as a freelance camerawoman, then as her own producer. Charlotte has written, shot and edited a wide variety from Children's, Woman's, News and Scientific programs to Documentaries, mainly in third world countries and even in war zones. These films have then be offered and aired mainly to the European based German speaking Cultural TV station 3 sat and Swiss TV.

Charlotte began as a Photographer, then did a internship at Swiss TV as one of the first camera-women in the 1970's, before studying film at the AFI. She has taken part in numerous workshops, among them with the late Polish Director Krzystof Kieslowski, has taught at several Art schools and regularly shows and speaks about her documentaries at German speaking Universities.

Two decades ago, following a close encounter with cancer, she left the professional “rat-race” and dedicated herself solely to documentaries and to teaching video skills to the youth of traditional and indigenous communities, enabling them to fight their own social and political battles via video and the Internet.


At the moment she is mainly working on a multilingual multimedia project, programmed herself and has developed it together with the Latin American correspondent Sandra Weiss.
