Sarah Laura Hauenstein

KSA MA film making (2014)

Sarah Laura Hauenstein (slhmedia) is a Swiss experimental and documentary filmmaker. She is interested in non-tangible and fragmental inner conflicts of human beings and complex interpersonal relationships. She expresses herself audio-visually and aims to glimpse behind the scenes by exploring ways and means to depict the concealed and to visualise the invisible.
Her background is in journalism and communications, BA studies, Switzerland and film making, MA studies, UK. In the past Sarah Laura has primarily been a member of an international group of like-minded filmmakers (many of them are alumni of the M.A. film making at Kingston University) and worked on collaborative projects in the roles of Producer/Assistant Director/Camera Operator and Editor. A major milestone was the editing-experience of She Is Juiced,a Creative Documentary about 4 LBGTQIA+ female artists by Lois Norman. She Is Juiced had its premiere at the Tate Britain in London in 2017.
With the growing desire of bringing her own ideas to life she has recently started to predominately focus on her own projects. Sarah Laura is currently working on her first feature-length documentary as a writer and director.
