The J Lounge interviews Filmmaker and New York Women in Film and TV Grantee Sarah Knight for an insightful interview.
Sarah Knight’s narrative feature debut Vino Veritas was released by Gravitas Ventures in 2013. Strong female-driven stories have been a hallmark of her work, which include the documentaries Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Fiend, about the female head groundskeeper of the Baltimore Orioles, and Hot Flash, about the band Saffire-The Uppity Blues Women. She attended the 2019 Stowe Story Labs Spring Writer’s Retreat with An Ideal Wife, her gender-reversal updating of Oscar Wilde’s An Ideal Husband. Her adaptation (co-written with Sarah Skibinski) of Michael Dorris’ bestselling novel A Yellow Raft in Blue Water, about three generations of Native American women, was featured at IFP Independent Film Week.
