Sarah Friedland got her filmmaking education from a combination of academic study and on-the-set training, working as an editor on films like the award-winning Free to Fly US/Cuba Link and the Emmy-nominated film The Life and Times of Frida Kahlo. Friedland dipped her toe into the directing pool with her experimental film Breath on the Mirror in 2005, which she made under residency at the Musée de Pont-Aven in Pont-Aven, France. Within the next two years, she was awarded three grants from the Paul Newman Foundation, the William Prusoff Foundation and the Jerome Foundation for her documentary Thing With No Name, which follows two HIV positive women in South Africa who sought access to treatment with an antiretroviral drug therapy. The film was selected to screen at several prominent festivals including Woodstock, Los Angeles and the London Independent. Friedland is in the midst of working on her second documentary set for completion in 2009 titled Subprimed, which provides a glimpse into the national foreclosure crisis by exploring a foreclosure epidemic in East New York and the consequences it has on the individual victims and the community as a whole.
