Sasha Waters Freyer (United States)

The films of Sasha Waters are nothing short of groundbreaking. Her feminist portrait of three New York dominatrixes – Whipped – funded in part by Sub Pop Records – was selected for the first-ever Sundance Producers conference. More recently, Garry Winogrand: All Things are Photographable, was called one of the year's best by The New Yorker and won a Special Jury Prize at the SXSW Film Festival. Her short experimental and essay films have been exhibited at Kassel Dokfest, Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin* Microscope Gallery, Anthology Film Archives, the Telluride Film Festival, and the Rotterdam, Tribeca, Ann Arbor, Woodstock, Chicago Underground, and Big Sky Documentary Film Festivals among other international venues. Sasha is currently completing a concert documentary Trouble Don’t Last ¬¬¬¬– part love letter, part eclectic gospel mix tape –sparked by her quest to rescue from obscurity the 1984 unfinished film about the Soul Stirrers by iconic American artist Bruce Conner.
