Serena is a "third-culture kid" born in Paris, and raised between London, Brussels, and New York. Her passion for travel, and cross-cultural issues has informed much of her work.
Serena’s first feature film, NANA, which she made when she was 23, is a trans-generational documentary about her grandmother, Maryla Michalowski-Dyamant, an Auschwitz survivor and activist for tolerance. Serena has been touring the world with NANA, presenting it in film festivals, schools and educational organizations. The award-winning film was chosen by the European Commission and European Jewish Congress to be presented on Holocaust Memorial Day 2018, where Serena participated in a discussion on the future of Holocaust education with the First Vice-President of the European Commission Frans Timmermans and the world-renowned historian and author Sir Simon Schama. NANA was picked up for distribution by First Run Features and released theatrically in 2018. It is available on iTunes and Amazon, as well as on YouTube.
Serena won the Women eNews “21 leaders in the 21st century” award in May 2018, alongside Abigail Disney, Amy Ferris, and other recipients.
