Lara Boon is a visual storyteller that mainly focusses on filmmaking and ‘all around styling’. She is driven by personal and intimate stories and through working with different media, colors, fabrics and materials she touches upon theme’s like ancestral trauma, familial relationships, and the feeling of belonging. Since her childhood she has been making, starting with painting, collaging, drawing and recently the art of script writing and (creative) directing. Her goal is to built bridges between different generations and groups in society, covering universal and sometimes controversial topics. She takes inspiration from her own childhood, family and (be)longings. 
Ever since her directors and writers debut with ‘Anna Coleta (2023) she explores the fine line between fiction and non-fiction, combining her own memories of her grandmother and her own film footage (that she shot on 9mm) with an actress portraying her. It opened her eyes to the medium of film and how she, as a filmmaker, wants to use it. That is how the concept of her graduation film Vergane Glorie came to life; a the true story mixed character research in combination with her own story.
