As a documentary media filmmaker, Esther deconstructs controversial issues by using ‘the interview’ with an open consent form as a research method to reveal ‘truth’.  Her work explores the use of empathy and gossip as catalysts to facilitate synchronicity between the greater public and its counter-publics, with the objective to transform passive viewers into collaborators and participants of the work.

Esther has an MFA in Documentary Media (Toronto Metropolitan University),  BA in Political Science (UWO), Certificate in Film Directing (Cuba, EICTV), Teacher in Adult Training Certificate, and a Diploma in New Media Technologies. She is currently a PhD Candidate at Queens University.
