who is SHE?

My name is Xenia and I'm an innovative film and visual artist. I make highly saturated hybrid films that stimulate the senses.


Xenia's work focuses on her personal experiences of black womanhood - the joys, the struggles, the misunderstood - externalizing what is often only experienced internally. Her impactful work has been recognized by Filmmaker Magazine, as she’s been featured as one of the 25 New Faces of Independent Film for 2022.


Her previous film A Few Things I'm Beginning to Understand just completed its festival run, screening at Indie Memphis, Slamdance, NFFTY, and many others. Xenia has just completed a new short, sci-fi and surreal OURIKA!, which premiered at the 2022 Blackstar Film Festival as part of their inaugural Philadelphia Filmmaker Lab. The film went to Sundance shortly after. In the future, Xenia seeks to install her films, using physical space to enhance the immersive experience.
