About Mariama Diallo
Mariama Diallo is a writer and filmmaker who lives in Brooklyn, New York. Mariama won a Mortimer Hays-Brandeis Travel Fellowship to shoot the documentary project “I Saw a Cross,” which is currently in post-production and is being produced by filmmaker Terence Nance. Along with director Frances Bodomo, Mariama cowrote “Everybody Dies!” which formed part of the ‘Collective:Unconscious’ omnibus that premiered at 2016’s SXSW Film Festival and which The New Yorker’s Richard Brody described as “a sharply satirical parody.”
Mariama graduated in 2010 from Yale University as a Film Studies and Political Science double major. This course of study laid the foundation for a cinematic approach that seeks to integrate social and political themes into film.
