About Taylor Rees, Director and Environmentalist
A filmmaker and photojournalist, Taylor is driven by an insatiable curiosity to explore and tell the stories beneath the surface. Embracing what she calls her “natural rebellious spirit”, Taylor spent two summers with a professor in Greenland, observing how climate change was impacting the country’s flora, but found that she was more interested in the stories the local Inuit people had to tell. She wanted to understand the impact of the changing climate on their lives, and during her second summer in Greenland, Taylor brought a video camera to document their stories. This sparked a passion for storytelling and launched her career from biology to filmmaking and photography.
