We Are Aurora - Sarah Bailey
Dir. Mitchell Lyon / Aurora NE / 4 min
We Are Aurora is a series of short documentaries about people who call Aurora, Neb., home. Episode 2 features Sarah Bailey, an amazing person and a good friend. We meant for our sole canvas to be the Nebraska prairie at sunset. Once the conversation started, though, I knew we’d need to capture a whole lot more. Sarah’s profession and hobbies are varied, but a singular passion drives everything she does. We can all learn a little something from Sarah about embracing the life we have right in front of us.
