Director Michael Marantz’s newest film, A Sister’s Hope, introduces us to Jamira Burley, an individual who has turned adversity into inspiration and positive community change. Equally heartbreaking as it is hopeful, her story weaves a narrative of loss, belief, dedication and action. 

Marantz, a SHOOT New Directors Showcase alum (2015), also served as executive producer, composer and editor on A Sister’s Hope which entailed his working in collaboration with Vital Voices and its honoree Burley.

Marantz teamed with DP Tim Sessler on the short which blends the arts of documentary and narrative filmmaking.
