Biography

Video maker. A Vancouver resident, Sacha Fink’s work explores discourses around transgenderism and issues surrounding gender identity and politics. Using 8mm film, her 2007 film We Are All in Your Head is an experiment with imagination, consciousness and identity formation that earned her a place in many queer and small-gauge film festivals internationally. In the early 2000s, Fink underwent the pre-process of gender reassignment but stopped before the surgery. An out lesbian and no longer a trans activist, she started fighting for social change regarding gender and as of 2004 "considers sex-change surgery ’sanctioned violence’". (1) Fink also has studied engineering.
