Sara Yacobi-Harris


Sara Yacobi-Harris is a multidisciplinary artist, filmmaker, media professional, and
community organizer.

Sara has been making films since 2016 with a particular interest in exploring and capturing intersectional identity and belonging using spoken word, movement, and dance as forms of expression.

In 2017, Sara produced and directed “Who is a Jew?”, a documentary exploring the cultural experiences of Black Jews and Jews of Colour in Toronto.

This year, in partnership with the Ontario Jewish Archives and No Silence on Race (a non-profit she founded), Sara directed and produced Periphery, a new short film, and portrait series, giving voice to the rich ethno-racial diversity that exists within the Ontario Jewish community. She is currently in post-production on an experimental dance film.

Sara has worked at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) and CBC’s unscripted department.

She holds a Master of Education (M.Ed) in Social Justice Education from the University of Toronto.
