Miriam Sobrino

Title: Assistant Professor
College: Fine Arts
School / Department: Film & Media Arts
Mentoring Philosophy:

Galician Filmmakers, Sonia and Miriam Albert-Sobrino (together known as the Also Sisters) have since 2011 been navigating the fluid world of Film and Media Arts from the United States. In the span of 10 years, The Also Sisters have directed a number of films with selections at major film festivals such as Sitges, Edinburgh, Raindance, Cinespaña, Chicago Underground, etc.

The work of these twin sisters, whose peculiar collaboration has often been characterized as the result of two heads thinking as one, does not stop on a movie set or in an art studio; committed to teaching the upcoming generations of filmmakers, the Also Sisters work as professors at the University of Utah’s Film and Media Arts Department.

WHY ALSO SISTERS? ALSO SISTERS is Sonia and Miriam’s professional adopted name. A portmanteau of their last name: ALbert-SObrino and the answer to the all too frequent questions: “So, you make films together? And you are ALSO Sisters?“
