Vanessa Castro

Multimedia journalist based in Berlin.

I am interested in developing transmedia narratives to build bridges between people, allowing them to tell their own stories.

I am constantly searching for the invisible edges of the story. ​A challenge in storytelling is to portray the humanity of each character.

Diversity on screen opens doors to other worlds, bringing us closer to each other.
