As a filmmaker, essayist and a curator she has also been exploring the relationship between humans and other animals, and human alienation from nature. For five years, she was a permanent editor of Czech Television's environmental programme Občanské noviny. She cooperates with the Biology Centre of the Academy of Sciences, the A2 magazine and the ethnobiological anthology Pandanus. She interprets from Bengali for refugees from the sinking Bangladesh.
