Ella’s films have been showcased in numerous national and international venues. Her film woodshed was an official selection of various national film festivals including the Hollywood Black Film Festival and the Montréal International Haitian Film Festival, where it was nominated for Best Short Film. In collaboration with Brown Medius Productions, she co-produced the short film Freedom in 2012, a docupoem of her poem by the same name.


Ella’s first short film, woodshed is told through music about two artists and their journey to find each other through their art. In 16 minutes, the audience is taken on a ride with stops at every emotion; from anger to joy to fear to remorse to pure elation, woodshed exposes the vulnerabilities of two people in love trying to make sense of their relationship the only way they know how…through artistic creation.
