About

Sarah Shamash’s research creation practice is committed to decolonial, feminist critique and action; it encompasses film, art, writing, curation, and education. Her film and artworks have been shown in curated exhibitions and film festivals internationally. Her recent film From Chile to Canada: Media Herstories is premiering at the Vancouver International Film Festival 2022. Her scholarly writing on film and art has been published in academic peer reviewed journals. Her most recent publication, A decolonising approach to genre cinema studies (2022) is open access on UCL press Film Education Journal. Her work as an artist, researcher, educator, and curator can be understood as interconnected and whole; they all revolve around a passion for cinema as a pluriversal technology of knowledge. She gratefully raises her son and lives on the unsurrendered and ancestral territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil Waututh First Nations in what is known as Vancouver.
