Elena Horn (2017) has worked for the past four years as a documentary filmmaker in London and Germany focusing especially on the way different societies cope with their histories of genocide. She started her career as a media psychologist researching the framing effects in the news coverage of the Iraq War in the US, Britain and Sweden. After working as a director and edit producer on historical documentaries for ITV, SKY and SPIEGEL, she now works on an historical program for ARTE—a French-German cultural channel—exploring how the railway changed the lives of people in Victorian London.
In her recent film “Lands of Lost Content” she explores issues around love, religion, ethnic conflict and family traditions in Rwanda and Serbia.
At the Carey Institute, Elena will edit a documentary about the culture of guilt in Germany and explore the way German schools teach their children about the Holocaust.
