Sasha Waters Freyer

Outsiders, flops and dark horses fascinate me.  Poets and children; artists and activists; dead and dying analog media.  My feature docs and experimental shorts are united by their exploration of displacement and invisibility as subject and metaphor. 

Sasha Waters Freyer is a moving image artist trained in photography and film whose work occupies the intersection of intimate experience and public discourse.  Her features and experimental short films created in 16mm have screened on the Sundance Channel and national PBS, Tribeca, Woodstock, Big Sky and Ann Arbor film festivals, the National Museum for Women in the Arts, the Los Angeles Film Forum and Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin among other venues.

Sasha’s films have been reviewed in ArtForum, The NewYorker, Variety, Indiewire and Mother Jones; her writing has appeared in Millennium Film Journal, Teachers & Writers Magazine, Ethnos and the Quarterly Review of Film & Video. She is the Chair of the Department of Photography & Film at Virginia Commonwealth University, ranked the number one public art school in the United States.
