Director Biography - Eha Urbsalu I am from Estonia and visual storytelling has been my interest since childhood, as my mother was a costume designer in Estonian film studio “Tallinfilm” during the Soviet Union. I have been an actress from early age. In recent years, however, I have moved more to the other side of the camera, writing, producing and directing. I received my B.A in Arts in Film and Media Arts, from SUNY in New York, having taken half the courses online while traveling the world. I had previously attended Hunter College for Music and American Academy of Dramatic Arts for Acting.
