Leah Borromeo

Disobedient Films

Leah Borromeo is a journalist and filmmaker at the crossroads of art and journalism. Described as “redolent with mischief” by the New Internationalist, much of her work involves personal narrative, public and private space, social architectures, the environment, and the language of journalism. The projects she works on at Disobedient are journalistic in purpose and creative in process. In addition to developing and directing documentary ideas for multiple platforms, she leads on the creation and development of ‘Climate Symphony’ - a data sonification project that takes narratives from climate change data and tells the story of our warming planet through sound. In addition to coming up with interventions that document, address and occupy real and virtual spaces, she has lectured and taught journalism, art and architecture at the Royal College of Art, the University of Gothenburg, City University, Oxford Brookes, Chelsea College of Art, Warwick University, University of Essex, the University of East London, Queen Mary University, the Roundhouse, and others.
