Meet the Director

Jordy Sank

Jordy Sank is a director with a passion for storytelling and filmmaking, with a vision to create content that evokes truth, meaning and emotion. His student film, “The Locket”, was nominated for a SAFTA for best student film in 2017, and was screened at various local and international festivals.

Jordy's first feature documentary, “I Am Here”, immortalizes the memoirs of holocaust survivor Ella Blumenthal. Having grown up alongside Ella, listening to her heart-wrenching stories of perseverance, resilience and strength, he was inspired to embark on this passion project, which had been a dream of his for over 5 years. The documentary was released in 2021.
