Speaking Her Voice: Isadora Gabrielle Leidenfrost

Her medium is film. Her spirit is feminine. Her voice is strong.

Inspired by multicultural motifs, my work creates a dialog between spirituality and embedded culture to create a space for experiencing under studied traditions throughout the world. I create documentary films, videos, and a perform a range of commerical video and film production services.
— Isadora Gabrielle Leidenfrost

Her most recent work Creating Buddhas: The Making and Meaning of Fabric Thangkas is a mesmerizing film about the history and tradition of the art of thangka making and the masters who carry forth the tradition. This film in particular highlights the story and voice of a western woman Leslie Rinchen-Wongmo who is the only female fabric thangka maker in the west and carries through her work the voice of the female buddha Tara and her own.
