Director Biography - Alexa May

Alexa is a designer and a filmmaker.

Her films are often female-centered, and explore identity, control, and sisterhood. They have been shortlisted at Flickers Rhode Island FF and selected at festivals like Oak Cliff, Gasparilla, DIFF, and PBS. She hopes they leave you with an aftertaste of hope.

In her free time, you’ll find Alexa journaling on Substack, resurrecting her 8th Grade basketball career, or playing catch-me-if-you-can with her sassy golden retriever, Ela. She would be a pastry chef or a Neuroscientist in a parallel universe.
