Sarah became a filmmaker after living and working in Tanzania. Upon her return, she realized that if you want to change something, you first have to change the story. After graduating from the Georgetown University School of Foreign Service she started working in film production as a location assistant on the Warner Bros. feature DISCLOSURE. She’s never looked back.
Sarah made her directorial debut with CATCHING OUT, a feature documentary about trainhopping and living free. CATCHING OUT premiered at the Seattle International Film Festival, screened at over 50 venues worldwide, aired on the Sundance Channel, and is currently streaming on iTunes and Amazon.
Her short documentary, PAULINE & IRJA, about two octogenarian activists who take to the streets in Los Angeles to promote peace in the aftermath of 9/11 was commissioned by Al Jazeera International for their Witness strand. Her most recent film, DWAYNE’S PHOTO, is a love story about film and family.
Sarah has two decades of experience working freelance on commercials, music videos, television and feature films. She recently embraced a new role as an Executive Producer on BEYOND THE BOLEX, a feature documentary that tells the epic personal story behind the beloved movie camera.
