Taina Galis

Taina Galis’s first love is cinematography. She has shot 8 features and many shorts, including 2 that won best film at Cannes’ Quinzaine des Réalisateurs. Taina sometimes takes dual roles of DP and editor as in Fyzal Boulifa’s LYNN + LUCY, Andrea Luka Zimmerman’s ERASE AND FORGET. She is very sensitive to performance, visual rhythm and coherence. For her, cinematography is a kind of empathy and exploration. Jules Wright Prize of Best Female Technician nomination; Best Cinematography, Underwire.
