          RAYAK is a film and media production company based in Denmark and working internationally. The company was founded in 2018 by Robin Petré.

Robin is a Danish documentary film director, writer, editor, and cinematographer. Her film PULSE won the Silver Dove for an Outstanding Artistic Contribution at DOK Leipzig 2016 (Germany) along with a number of other international awards and nominations. The film has traveled around the world, screening at festivals such as Sheffield Doc/Fest (UK), Visions du Réel (Switzerland), and Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival (USA).

An explorer at heart, she has studied and worked with film and media in 12 countries spanning across five continents, including Australia, Ecuador, the USA, and Thailand. In 2015, she graduated with an MA in Documentary Film Directing from Doc Nomads, the European traveling film school encompassing Portugal, Hungary and Belgium.

Robin is greatly inspired by nature and deeply invested in the notion of the Anthropocene and our co-existence with the natural world. Her work relates to environmental concerns while remaining playful in regards to film language.
Her interest in merging experimental techniques with her creative approach to non-fiction cinema has led her to work across different formats. This year, her recent 16mm experimental short film, Stream, was nominated in the Nordic Competition at the 30th Minimalen Short Film Festival in Norway.
