Sarah and Tamer on computer screen
Sarah and Tamer The Great Disconnect-blurred
"Tamer and Sarah are a delight to work with and the audiences have always been highly engaged after screenings with them. They are well informed both as filmmakers and as social connection advocates. They bring their experience of making the film to the table which all our audiences have found interesting, as well as, information they have learnt since completing the film. A screening of their film is only enhanced by having them speak afterwards."
-Mitzie Murray
Executive Director, Third Action Film Festival
"Tamer and Sarah, the film-makers, were excellent panel members. They shared their experience of creating the film and some of the consequences of its showing around the world. Focused and clear, their observations acted as a stimulus and trigger for the other panelists. They did not seek to dominate the conversation or shape it, but acted as collaborative and engaged colleagues seeking to make sense of where the film takes us in terms of potential social action."

“The City of Victoria had the pleasure of screening The Great Disconnect and hosting Tamer and Sarah for a Q&A session. They are both extremely personable and passionate about this work, and a pleasure to work with. If you get the chance to engage with them, do it! You will get re-energized and filled with great ideas on how to connect with your neighbours.”
-Kimberley Stratford
Neighbourhood Coordinator, City of Victoria
"Tamer and Sarah’s support, enthusiasm, experience, and passion around this work has led to the success of our own community event. We thank them both for their gift to the world, and for helping us commence the work on re-connection."
