Director Biography - ALEXANDRA VELASCO

Alexandra Velasco is a bilingual writer/director from Mexico City based in LA.

Her background as a visual artist empowers her to create bold avant-garde films with Lynchian undertones starring weirdos and outcasts dealing with themes of guilt and redemption that jumpstart tough conversations.

Her art has screened at museums, galleries and festivals worldwide and been featured in Vogue, Elle, i-D magazine and IndieWire.

Her destiny in life is to create art that acts as a mirror, and helps people believe in magic, to help them access their emotions, pay attention to their dreams, nightmares and inner workings of their minds.

Her latest short “The Seventh Circle” is currently streaming on NoBudge.
