Camilla Becket, Writer/Director

Camilla began her professional career working for independent publishers who originated books by anti-apartheid intellectuals and artists, including Nobel Laureates Nelson Mandela, Nadine Gordimer, and J.M Coetzee. She edited a book review column for a South African newspaper and co-established the Cape Town Book Fair, which is now the South African Book Fair. Camilla’s first film was an award-winning film about intractable childhood epilepsy that she made in response to her young child’s diagnosis. Since then she has edited and co-produced several Becket Films projects, including films for the Religion, Science, and Environment series about besieged water bodies around the world and which feature leading environmentalists and climate change activists as well as religious and indigenous leaders.
