Juliana Ruhfus


Juliana Ruhfus is an award-winning reporter and filmmaker who produces programmes with a human rights and investigative focus from around the world. For the past four years, she has been the reporter on the Al Jazeera English flagship People & Power strand. 

A frequent visitor to areas of conflict, Ruhfus’s particular ambition is to make films that explore “shades of grey” – to tell the complex personal stories behind the news headlines.
