In 1980 she made her first feature film Dina e Django and two years later she founded the company Torromfilm. For Torromfilm she produced a number of television programs and films, f.ex. Comédia Infantil based on the Henning Mankell novel, as well as a series of documentaries on writers, among these: Stig Claesson and J.
