About the film

Directed by Bill Phillips
2015, USA, 57 Minutes

This documentary explores the life and career of Vermont based printmaker, Sabra Field. The film highlights a body of work spanning more than five decades from her most commonly circulated images which celebrate American pastoral motifs in New England, to her lesser-known but equally important explorations of figurative mythology, Italian tableaux, and political inquiry. Filmmaker and personal friend, Bill Phillips, has created an insightful portrait of the artist’s long and productive life, featuring interviews that reflect on how travel, personal tragedy, and life in the Green Mountain State have impacted the development of her work over the years.
