Meet a Fabricante #37 – Sarah Friedland

Sarah is a filmmaker and choreographer from the US who’s recently joined our Social Campaigns team. She likes when “nothing” happens,  because she thinks that can be really inspiring. If you wish to learn more about her, have a look at the interview below!


Can you describe in no more than 30 words who you are and what you do?
I’m a filmmaker and choreographer who works between moving images and moving bodies. Raised in California. (Usually) based in Brooklyn.  Proud twin and melodrama enthusiast. Practicing micro-napper.

What do you expect from your time at Fabrica?
Hoping to pick up swear words and non-sensical idioms from at least a half dozen other countries. And to be challenged by my inimitable peers.

What inspires you most?
When “nothing” happens.

What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
I receive a version of this text bi-monthly from my father and it never loses its relevance: “Sweetheart, please remember to look both ways. Love, Daddy.” It’s meant as a directive for crossing the street but my father’s a greater poet than he even knows!

What do you miss of your home and what do you like of Italy?
I miss whispering sweet nothings to the bodega cats of Brooklyn when I buy milk or toilet paper. Currently most excited by the rhythm of the church bells and how their pitch varies town by town.
