Maya Sanbar - MoA Bonus Episode

In this bonus episode Gary Mansfield speaks to Maya Sanbar (@mayasanbar)


Maya is an Artist and Filmmaker. Her work in both moving image and installation is centred on the art of storytelling. Footsteps on the Wind is her directorial debut in the narrative and animation world. Her experience is varied, her artworks being often collaborative and enabling of others adding their voices to a central theme. In relation to this film, aside from her own family refugee history, she sought out the depth of emotional truth within refugee stories via therapy workshops, ensuring that this is a film about refugees, told by refugees, for refugees and the general public young and old. As a multimedia artist, her work has been exhibited internationally, notably installations at Shoreditch Town Hall in London “Waiting” 2015, the Rubin Museum of Art in New York City “Alex in Wonderland” scented experience (2016), and at the Berlin Wall on the 30th anniversary of its fall “Chasing the Light” (2019), “Words on the Hill” at the Coronet Theatre in London (2020). Her film production credits include 360 immersion visits to artist studios and documentaries. Sanbar is fluent in 6 languages and passionate about crossing cultural boundaries using words with images to bring about a fresh point of view.
