Hõbe Ilus was born in Estonia, 1989. After achieving BA in Literature, she decided to travel and live abroad. This decision guided her to many odd-jobs and cross-cultural experiences. The idea to study documentary was taking shape. She graduated Documentary Master’s in Tallinn at BFM in 2018. Having experienced life from unfamiliar angles, she has learned that she can never escape her roots nor the urge to create. Her interest lies in people.
