Penelope Zouganeli (she/ her) is a greek filmmaker based in East London. 

She competed her studies In Genetics in England where she was organising music events for students. This is when she started experimenting with editing, set design and graphic communication design for the first time. Soon after her graduation she decided to enrol in Central Saint Martins to pursue a career in Graphic Design.
