Great Britain. She is a British director who made her debut in 1971 with the documentary Yesterday's Men that she made for television. This is the medium that she has been working in for more than 20 years where she has made such outstanding films as The Best Days, Shiftwork, Dream Baby, Children Crossing or Mr Wakefield's Crusade. In 1985 she won an Emmy with the film The Treble. Two years later she directed Sweet As You Are, a spine-chilling document about a relationship affected by AIDS starring Liam Neeson and Miranda Richardson which won, among other prizes, the Golden Hugo at the Chicago Festival, an ACE award in the USA and the Royal Television Society Award for Best Film and Best Actress which went to Miranda Richardson. In 1993 she filmed a documentary in Bosnia, Ordinary People, as part of the BBC series "Inside Story" with which she won the Silver FIPA award. A year later she made her first full-length fictional film with Captives, starring Tim Roth and Julia Ormond in which once again she sketched a provocative difficult love affair between an inmate and a dentist who goes to a jail to visit the prisoners. In 1996 in the Zabaltegi section at the Donostia-San Sebastián International Film Festival she presented her second film Hollow Ree.
