Lara Damiani is a purpose driven filmmaker – driven by the desire to make films that educate, inspire and motivate.

Lara has had wide experience in the corporate world before forging her new path to become an independent documentary maker at the end of 2006.

She started with a bang. Her first production, Tibet’s Cry for Freedom, screened in Australia, NZ, the US, the UK, Europe and Asia. It included exclusive interviews with the Dalai Lama and a Tibetan independence activist who broke a three-year silence to be involved.

Watch the television shows on Channel 7 and Channel 9 that signal the start of Lara’s documentary filmmaking career:


Other documentaries quickly followed, and Lara also worked on two ABC productions and one theatrical production and received development funding for another project about the story of Aboriginal stockmen in central Australia. Uncovering information in the archives that few knew about, Lara continues to work on this unfunded project. Watch the Channel 7 story here:
