She first made her mark in the fashion and beauty world with clients such as Maybelline, Tory Burch, Suave, and Sally Hansen. Her work has been featured in Glamour, Refinery29, Teen Vogue, Variety, and Style.com.
Sasie’s films have screened at the Smithsonian Institute and festivals around the world and she has twice been awarded the short filmmaking prize at the Tribeca Film Festival, with New York Magazine calling her film, The Elephant Garden, “one of the most touching and poignant films we’ve seen this year.” A fellowship and new short with HBO in 2014 led to a chance to direct episodic television and her first DGA nomination for her work on the Amazon series, Gortimer Gibbons’ Life on Normal Street. She is based in New York City and most recently, debuted her first feature, Lucky Grandma, at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival to rave reviews.
