TEONA SMALLER - redimonsionée

Born in 1974 into a family of artists in Skopje, Macedonia, Teona Strugar Mitevska became a television and theatre actress from the age of six. After secondary school, she trained as a painter and graphic designer, then studied film at the Tisch School of the Arts, a school attached to New York University. A committed filmmaker, she defines herself as a “femartivist”, combining her commitments and her artistic dimension with feminism. In 2018, the French Minister of Culture awarded her the title of Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres. Teona Strugar Mitevska lives between Skopje and Brussels with her son Kaeliok.
