Lorna Tucker

Lorna Tucker cut her teeth working behind the camera and jumping on tour buses with rock bands such as Unkle, Lupe Fiasco, The Cult and Queens of The Stone Age creating tour videos and music promos. She then moved into longer format storytelling, directing documentaries, writing scripts and creating more experimental video art projects for the likes of Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood and Nike. Her first feature documentary, Westwood – Punk Icon Activist, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January and is being released by Greenwich Entertainment on June 8. This year will also see the release of Amá, a feature documentary about the sterilization abuses of Native American women across the United States during the last 60 years, which because of its socially sensitive nature has taken a decade to bring to fruition. Tucker was recently hailed by Harper’s Bazaar as one of the top five breakout female filmmakers of 2018.
