Alex Morelli is an artist, filmmaker, and educator based in Chicago, IL. Drawing on personal, observational, and archival practices, he makes films that explore intergenerational memory, carceral landscapes, and the relationship between place and identity. He fell in love with documentary while a student of Robb Moss, Ross McElwee, and Alfred Guzzetti at Harvard and later completed an MFA at Duke. His work has been supported by the LEF Foundation, the Puffin Foundation, the Flies Collective, and the Film Study Center at Harvard. When he’s not teaching or working as a cinematographer and editor, he enjoys organizing community screenings.
