Talena Sanders is a filmmaker and interdisciplinary artist interested in the development of individual and collective senses of identity in the context of religious and affinity groups.

She holds an MFA from Duke University’s Experimental and Documentary Arts program and a BFA from the University of Kentucky. Her work has been screened, exhibited, and collected internationally, including at the New York Film Festival's Views from the Avant-Garde, Marseille Festival of Documentary Film, Montreal International Documentary Festival, Indie Festival Brazil, Media City Film Festival, Edinburgh International Film Festival, and Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art.
