Having directed six films until now, through her work she aims to discuss non-traditional family systems, loneliness, love, and most importantly, the lack of it.
Jacqueline is the recipient of numerous prominent awards, including the Leica Cine Discovery Award by Semaine de La Critique, the Golden Hugo in Chicago IFF, as well as the Grand Prix in Reykjavik IFF and Sevilla Film Festival for Moon, 66 Questions (2021), her debut feature which premiered in Berlinale Encounters Competition, receiving raving reviews globally.
