SOAH IS A TUCSON AND NEW YORK CITY BASED FILMMAKER WHO LIKES CREATING WORLDS SHE CAN DISAPPEAR INTO FOR A WHILE. SHE HOPES THAT HER FILMS MAKE AUDIENCES FEEL LIKE THEY ARE FAIRIES AND ENCOURAGES FOLKS TO LOOK, LISTEN, AND STAY A WHILE. WITH A FOCUS IN CINEMATOGRAPHY, SOAH IS CURRENTLY STUDYING FILMMAKING AND MOVING IMAGE ARTS AT SARAH LAWRENCE COLLEGE WHERE SHE IS ABLE TO GROW HER KNOWLEDGE IN THE CRAFT WHILE ALSO LEARNING OTHER SUBJECTS THAT INSPIRE HER STORYTELLING. SHE BELIEVES THAT HER LOVE FOR VISUAL ART STRENGTHENS HER FILMMAKING AND INTENTIONALLY SURROUNDS HER LIFE WITH THE MAGIC OF ART. GUIDED BY HER DESIRE TO EVOKE A SENSE OF WONDER, SOAH'S ANALOG ETHEREALNESS WELCOMES VIEWERS TO HOLD HER HAND AND WALK THROUGH NARRATIVES TOGETHER AS SHE HERSELF CONTINUES EXPLORING HER IDENTITY AS A QUEER WOMAN OF COLOR THROUGH THE MEDIUM. HER FILMS HAVE WON AT FILM FESTIVALS INCLUDING BOULDER INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL AND HAVE BEEN SELECTED AT FILM FESTIVALS SUCH AS NATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL FOR TALENTED YOUTH AND CINEYOUTH. SHE IS DEDICATED TO MAKING FILMMAKING A MORE ACCESSIBLE ART FORM AND CO-FOUNDED ANTI-HERO FILM FESTIVAL WITH THE HELP OF THE MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART DENVER WHICH SEEKS TO SHARE AND CELEBRATE PERSPECTIVES, NARRATIVES, AND EXPERIENCES THAT HAVE BEEN LEFT OUT OF HISTORY. AS WELL AS OPENING UP THE FIELD OF CINEMATOGRAPHY MORE FOR DREAMERS LIKE HERSELF, SOAH FINDS IT IMPORTANT TO CENTER CONVERSATIONS AROUND INTERSECTIONAL ENVIRONMENTALISM AND HER PREVIOUS WORK HAS BEEN FEATURED BY THE ORGANIZATION INTERSECTIONAL ENVIRONMENTALIST. SHE IS ALSO CURRENTLY WRITING HER FIRST FEATURE-LENGTH SCREENPLAY. MORE THAN ANYTHING, SOAH BELIEVES IN THE POWER OF FILMMAKING AND HOW IT BRINGS PEOPLE TOGETHER, THE CONNECTION IT MAKES, AND THE IMAGINATION IT IGNITES.
