Dolores Vunda is a film director graduate at the Warsaw Film School. She was born and raised in The Democratic Republic of Congo. She fell in love with the movie industry since she was still a child, believing that an image holds a thousand words. She always wanted to tell stories about what she felt was good or bad, right or wrong. The fact of not being a talkative person, she chose to tell stories in a different way.
