Her film Treasure (2021), made for Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery in collaboration with British Museum archaeologists, is screening in Shorts 5: silent/cinema.
Sam is currently working on a short animated magical realist fairy tale about dysentery, A Language of Shapes (2022, in production) funded by a Wellcome Trust award and made in collaboration with the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
