Hey APC! My name is Sokhna Samb and I’m an aspiring cinematographer. When it comes to my work, I am constantly inspired by vibrant colors, symmetry, and most importantly by what’s being captured and what’s not. In my future work, I would like to explore how detached the camera is as a tool of photography and cinematography.
Inspired by watching movies as a kid, as a teenager, I began to make my own short films. I hope that in my life I’ll be able to both create and participate in spaces where black women are directing films and creating stories that are universal yet very specific to poc experiences. I’m excited about the future and the pieces that I have yet to make!
