Hey, I'm Liminal!

South Lake Tahoe, California

Sara Lafleur-Vetter is a filmmaker and photojournalist with a passion for telling stories of the underdog and the underbelly of society. She believes in the power of film and photography to better the world. Lafleur is inspired by and committed to the #decolonizedocs movement and believes media makers have a duty to flip the script of structural inequality, racism, sexism, and heteronormativity. She is humbled and grateful to work in documentary film and is learning everyday about how she can be a better ally and use her privilege to amplify the voices of underrepresented populations.

 

Lafleur holds a Master’s in Journalism specializing in Documentary Film from the Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism. She’s engaged to a wonderful man named Leaf, and hopes to live long enough to tell really good stories. She is the proud mama of a truly wonderful one-year old named Sierra - and she's learning how life begins again once you become a parent.

 

At present, Lafleur is working on a feature-length film about several Indigenous activists who were transformed by their experience at Standing Rock. The Sacred & The Snake focuses on how the experience of collective trauma, cultural self-discovery, and non-violent direct action catalyzed an array of other resistance movements across the country. While much of the public accepts the media narrative that Standing Rock was a failure, these protagonists defiantly show otherwise. The resistance camps lit a fire in each one of them and set them on a new path, while reawakening a global awareness of the environment and Indigenous sovereignty.
