Sarah Easen

Sarah Easen trained as a film archivist at the University of East Anglia in 1994. While researching her MA dissertation on British women documentary filmmakers, she became aware of how poorly acknowledged many of these women’s careers were. Concentrating on filmmakers Margaret Thomson and Kay Mander, she continued investigating their lives after completing her MA and presented seasons of their work at the BFI and Imperial War Museum as well as at various conferences.

Other interests include films made for the Festival of Britain in 1951 and the many other neglected women filmmakers of the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s. She has worked as a film archivist for over 20 years, at the Imperial War Museum, BFI, British Universities Film and Video Council and most recently the ITN Archive.
