Elisa brings to bear an extraordinary journalistic foundation to her film productions. From the fall of the Berlin Wall to the Gulf War in 1990, from the collapse of the Soviet Union to the wars in the former Yugoslavia and Somalia, Elisa was there. Her work in Somalia was recognized with a News and Documentary Emmy Award. Based first in Rome and then in Moscow, Elisa spent 15 years chronicling world events for CNN International. She interviewed Nelson Mandela, Yasser Arafat, refugees in Bosnia, war criminals in Serbia and South Africans in Johannesburg celebrating their first free vote. Elisa has spent her career committed to telling the stories that matter — stories that bridge divides and bring people together.


Founded in 2002 by two longtime international journalists One Production Place creates films that make a difference.
We tell stories. We bring people together.
