Kyra Sacks

After working as a visual artist and teacher for nearly ten years, Kyra went on to study Anthropology at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, the Netherlands. She wrote her master’s thesis on the contradictions encountered in daily life for refugees living in protracted displacement in Greece, based on fieldwork conducted in a camp near Athens. For the short film Safar, she built on this pre-existing knowledge of this topic and her relationships in the field in order to dive further into the refugees’ experiences, and this time explored them through the lens of a visual ethnography.
