    Mariah Garnett mixes documentary, narrative and experimental filmmaking practices to make work that accesses existing people and communities beyond her immediate experience. Using source material that ranges from found text to iconic gay porn stars, Garnett often inserts herself into the films, creating cinematic allegories that codify and locate identity. Her debut feature TROUBLE (2019) looks at the legacy of the Troubles through the lived experience of her estranged Northern Irish father.
