She has written and directed several short films, including “Orange Bow” (centering on a teenage boy) and “Pariah.” The latter, completed in 2007, screened at over 40 festivals worldwide (including Sundance) and garnered 25 Best Short awards.

The Nashville native’s most recent short film, “Colonial Gods,” aired on the BBC in the fall of 2009. The short chronicles a complicated friendship between a Somali man and a Nigerian man, set against the backdrop of gentrification in the small immigrant community in Cardiff, Wales known as Tiger Bay.

Also prior to making “Pariah,” Ms. Rees directed a documentary feature, “Eventual Salvation.” The film, which she also edited, received a 2007 Sundance Documentary Fund Grant and premiered on the Sundance Channel in October 2009. It follows her grandmother’s return to Liberia on to help rebuild a community following the country’s civil war.
