ABOUT
Simon Scionka
FILMMAKER
Director of Photography - Editor

I've had the privilege of traveling the world and so far filmed in 32 countries, including documenting stories of orphans, human trafficking survivors and focusing sustainable and entrepreneurial solutions to poverty.

Current projects include working as the director of photography and editor for the PovertyCure initiative and just finished up post-production on our feature length documentary Poverty, INC which is currently in the film festival circuit.

Also been working on the film Be Relentless, a binational, bilingual, feature-length documentary that follows single mom, survivor and ultra athlete, Norma Bastidas, as she doubles the world record for longest triathlon of more than 3,500 miles from Cancun, Mexico to Washington D.C. to empower survivors everywhere. Her mission is to demonstrate to the world that one’s past does not dictate one’s future, and prove that everyday people are capable of making extraordinary strides in the fight against the problems facing the world today.
