Sam Ball’s documentaries have been exhibited at many of America’s most prestigious venues for independent film, ranging from the Sundance Film Festival to the Museum of Modern Art – New York’s documentary fortnight, and several of them have aired on public television. His most recent film, Joann Sfar Draws from Memory (a collaboration with KQED PRESENTS, distributed to PBS affiliates nationally) profiles a bestselling graphic novelist whose work explores intersections of North African and European heritage.
