"Art is the flaw, captured beautifully,
that we may have compassion for our ugliest ugly."
Hi! I’m Mara Lee Gilbert, a New York-based actor, filmmaker, and writer.
I create work that draws on stories of violence, sexual taboos, and power dynamics in intimate relationships.
Thank you for visiting my page, where I share my work and passion.
I seek to engage with my audience on the fundamental human quest for a deeper experience of life. More particularly, I aim to illuminate our darkest elements under a lens of of compassion. Art may be the only way to do this, or in the very least, it is most certainly an effective way to explore it.
