Alexandra Dietz is an independent filmmaker and photojournalist currently based in Washington, D.C. Her work seeks to inspire curiosity while challenging viewers to look beyond stereotypical assumptions. Born in Detroit, Michigan, Dietz earned her B.F.A. from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2010. In 2011, she received the Fulbright-Nehru India Research Fellowship to create a series on the child brides in rural India. In 2013, her project Changing Tides in Key West, a documentary on the diverse and contradictory lifestyles found on Key West, was funded by a successful $16,200 Kickstarter campaign. This work culminated in a solo exhibition at Studios of Key West, and selected pieces were exhibited at Art Basel in Miami. Recent projects include All That Breaks, a series that follows Xhosa women in Cape Town, South Africa as they leave sex work to build new lives, and Rebel Pride, examining the American attachment to the confederate flag as a flashpoint of controversy and symbol of identity. Your Way Back to Me is Dietz's newest work about her girlfriend Hannah Sheridan's journey to reconnect with her Native American roots, and probably Dietz's most personal endeavor in to a project yet.
