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 the 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.

Mara's debut, award-winning, short film, What's Left, can be viewed upon Request.
