Sara is an up and coming female director with a passion for creating emotive content and shedding a light on stigmatised communities.
Now living in London, Sara was born and raised in Ireland, and a daughter of Iranian immigrants. She often draws from her unique diasporic experience in her creative projects and likes to challenge stereotypes through her work. Sara brings a strong photographic eye to every project she works on, and enjoys playing with abstract angles and obscure lighting to create visually striking work.
Sara’s latest short film examines immigrant fathers and their perception of mental health. In this film we listen to her father recount his childhood in the mountains of Iran, which he frequently hiked with his late brother. Following his older brother’s death, he continues this hiking tradition when immigrating to Ireland, to get away from what he describes as that ‘Sunday feeling’.
