In 2011 Ella gave her feature debut in Friederike Jehns SUMMER OUTSIDE. That experience was groundbreaking for Ella and led her to the decision to study acting in London.

Reviews RAW - Press Break in Cannes - Cineuropa, Spiegel Online, Frowning, ICS Film, Screendaily
"Strikingly original and teeming with talented performers, Raw carries a distinct air of being ‘this year’s It Follows’, another horror that left the Semaine with huge praise. If all goes as it should, Raw has the potential to replicate that picture’s runaway, sleeper success."
