Natalia Brammen

Natalia Brammen is an undergraduate Film student at Falmouth University in the UK. She is primarily interested in screen representations of less privileged groups, questioning gender norms and expectations. In her dissertation, from a feminist standpoint, she interrogated the male privilege and the glorification of male auteurs in the contemporary cinema. She is currently working on a documentary exploring the concept of millennial burnout. Her work as a non-narrative film practitioner awarded her with experience in various roles ranging from directing and writing to sound design. Natalia typically uses visual storytelling to create an emotional response and provoke her viewers’ engagement in social and cultural debates.


Beginnings is Brammen’s student film experiment—a non-narrative, somewhat feminist, take on the dominance of narrativity in our western culture and our cinemas.
