Sarah Vasen

Sarah Vasen is a young documentary maker and Visual Anthropologist based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. After graduating from her BA Media and Culture and MA Visual Ethnography she wants to continue making films which highlight human qualities and similarities across the world, building on empathy instead of the aspects that divide us. Her first short documentary gives a glimpse into the life of a nomad in Tagounite, Morocco, which was shown at 2Doc Makers van Morgen. During her second short documentary she asks herself how it is to be a student, especially a female student, in the Islamic Republic of Iran. In her latest documentary she explores the meaning of music for young Palestinians in the West Bank. Currently, she is learning Arabic and getting inspired for upcoming documentaries.
