Prunelle Mathet

documentary filmmaker

My biggest passion is telling stories that are inspiring and thought-provoking. I believe that the stories we tell shape our world and I am interested in shedding light on topics that touch on human rights and sustainability. 

I co-directed my debut feature documentary, "El peso de la manta" alongside Otoxo Productions. The film follows the unionization of illegal immigrant street vendors in Barcelona, known as "manteros".


I have a specialization in Documentary Photography and Visual Anthropology from the IEFC. And a specialization in post-production and Color Correction from the Barcelona Cinema School. I've also worked as a post-production assitant with the documentary production company, Nanouk films.

I currently work independently as a director, color corrector and editor for documentary film and commercial projects.
