For the last 12 years I've been working with directors to help them realize their vision. My skills as both a video editor (Final Cut Pro, Premiere, Avid), and a story editor, have been honed to a fine point.
Originally from Tunisia, I am multi-lingual and have edited films and shorter videos in English, French, Arabic, Italian, Spanish, Greek and Turkish.
Currently, Sara is co-producing and editing Tunisia 2.0, a documentary about two Tunisians after the revolution in 2011. She is also editing Genomania, a feature-length documentary that shows how genetic determinism, unsupported by scientific evidence, has been used throughout American history to justify race, gender and class inequalities, and provided the basis for harmful social policies. She is creative lead of Project: Burned, a transmedia documentary about the execution of Todd Cameron Willingham and a look at arson investigation in the United States.
Sara has edited the following:
- Amal’s Garden, a documentary by Nadia Shihab, premiered in December 2012 at Dubai International Film Festival, Cinema du Reel - Paris, France, Bird’s Eye View - London, England, Gulf Film Festival - Dubai, UAE
- In This Waiting, a feature length documentary based in Cyprus which tells the stories of seven Cypriots who lost loved ones in the 1974 civil war. In This Waiting premiered at the Thessaloniki Documentary Festival on March 15th, 2011.
- ITVS-LINCS awardee, The Music’s Gonna Get You Through, directed by Gabrielle Mullem and premiered on PBS Spring 2010.
- Rabbits and Wrinkles, a series of short films about five Italian grandmothers and their cooking secrets.
