Hear Sarah talk about her film Home Exercises in the below interview:
Sarah Friedland is a filmmaker and choreographer working at the intersection of moving images and moving bodies. “We need to pay more attention to the meaning of the moves in the movies...at the specificity of gestures,” she said in an essay published in The International Journal of Screendance. This ethos characterizes much of her work that has been featured on PBS’ Channel Thirteen and screened in dozens of festivals internationally. A graduate of Brown University, she got her start assisting filmmakers including Steve McQueen, Mike S. Ryan, Kelly Reichardt, and the team behind HBO's GIRLS. Her latest upcoming work is called CROWDS, a dance film project to be filmed in Bologna in May, exploring the “politicized choreography of crowd typologies.”
