Read MoreMiriam Sachs is a screenwriter, filmmaker, poet, and songwriter. She grew up watching movie musicals like Oliver! and The Lion King, sitting in front of the TV in quiet worship. She started writing poetry at age seven after falling in love with writers like Jack Kerouac, Mary Oliver, and E. E. Cummings. At age thirteen, she picked up the guitar. You can now find her in coffee shops and treetops, penning poems, songs, and stories. Along with an obsession with Krzysztof Kieslowski came an obsession with turning poetry into cinema. She has written and directed countless projects, ranging from the surrealist comedy, The Bruise (2019), to an experimental documentary about the future, Time Capsule (2019). Her current project, Spit It Out, Margot! is the second musical she has written with her close friend Zack Hernandez.
