about cara


Cara at Acadia National Park


I feel at home on the rocky coast of Maine, gazing at the horizon. I was born and raised in New York City, and lived many years in Washington, D.C.


I have a B.A. in Philosophy and English Literature and an M.F.A. in Film & Media Production. My work has been broadcast around the world, awarded at festivals, screened at conferences, and exhibited
in museums.

Rocky coast of Maine


I founded Firefly Films in 2000 to promote social justice and environmental awareness.
I renamed it Cara Mia Media in 2009.


Nature is my source of well being. I practice yoga, play the piano, and love to dance. I wish
I could sing like Aretha!
