Sarah Teagle

Reston, VA

Sarah Teagle brings her many years of research in child and adolescent public health, stigma, and cultural anthropology to documentary filmmaking. Her goal is to tell stories of people who defied the stereotypes placed on them by producing cinéma vérité style documentary shorts and short narrative profiles. In the past year, she has used Covid isolation to get up to speed on the basic mechanics of filming and editing by creating two narrative shorts for local artists. She is also a student at the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University.

ABOUT THE FILM:  King for the Day
