She has worked on various programs including the popular Netflix series, "You" and "Seven Seconds," and is on board with the directorial team of the newest Star Wars film, becoming the first Black woman to be in that role.
"My overriding intentions as a filmmaker, is to tap into individual inquiries and reflect-whatever is hidden. Inspiring an audience’s need for further inquiry into whatever stories, wishes, wants, hungers, desires, questions or aches-presently propel them. From my filmmaking, I’d love audiences to receive some measure of inspiration; to investigate the human condition.” - Victoria Mahoney
