Her 2017 hybrid documentary Pumpkin Movie premiered at True/False to considerable praise, as well as at Hot Docs and Sheffield Doc Fest.

It was also the centerpiece of “Super Succinct and Radically Direct,” a retrospective of Sophy’s work at the Museum of the Moving Image in New York City. She has directed documentary films for such acclaimed outlets such as CBC Short Docs (In Dog Years, 2019) and Kino Lorber (Remembrance of József Romvári, 2020).
