Sara Terry

Sara Terry has focused on post-conflict storytelling as a documentary photographer and filmmaker since 2000, when she transitioned from print and public radio journalism into long-term visual projects. During this period, she has produced two well-received main bodies of work, “Aftermath: Bosnia’s Long Road to Peace,” and “Forgiveness and Conflict: Lessons from Africa,” which have earned several awards, including a 2012 Guggenheim Fellowship in Photography. Terry is also an accomplished documentary filmmaker. Her first film, Fambul Tok, about an unprecedented grass-roots reconciliation program in post-conflict Sierra Leone, was supported by the Sundance Documentary Institute, and has won several awards. After its premiere at SXSW Film Festival in 2011, Fambul Tok enjoyed a long, world-wide festival run and continues to screen today.
