Director, Producer and Editor

Georgia Scott's latest documentary film, set in Kenya, explored the threats facing a unique Swahili community on Lamu Island on the border of Somalia. She has worked extensively as a Project Manager, is experienced in branding and specializes in editing. Georgia’s key strength is her ability to communicate empathetically with people from all backgrounds and in any environment. Along with Sophia, Georgia runs GroundTruth Productions which produces films across Africa, Europe and the Balkans.


IN THE SHADOW OF WAR could not have been filmed and produced without the help of the film's support network. Each member of the team brings invaluable expertise to the group - allowing the story to be told the way it should be.
