Theresa Traore Dahlberg, 28 years old, is a director and creative producer. She grew up in Sweden and Burkina Faso. The last ten years she has traveled the world and been living in Barcelona, Ohio, Stockholm and New York. Working with film has allowed her to be mobile and explore her curiosity in different projects, topics, people and cultures. She studied 16 mm film at The New School in New York and three years at the Stockholm Academy of Dramatic Arts. Taxi Sister is her thesis film, the documentary depicts the female taxi driver Boury, one of fifteen female drivers in Dakar, Senegal. The film immediately got a lot of media coverage in Sweden and the premiere screening in Stockholm was sold out. The trailer has been written about in blogs all over the world. It is obvious that people worldwide are craving to see and discuss movies from the African continent that are empowering and inspiring with a woman as the main character. This fall Theresa will be living and working in New York. Her film Taxi Sister will be screening at numerous film festivals.
