Alexus Stewart

she/her

EVC Films: Colors of Health: Understanding Unequal Care in New York City (2018); Ride to Nowhere (2018)

While at an alternative school and unsure of her future path, Alexus made two films at EVC including one in which she testified at an MTA hearing to demand accountability. Alexus used these films to help get a full scholarship to Ithaca College, one of the top 25 film schools in the country. Alexus is now in her senior year as a Park Scholar at Ithaca College studying filmmaking, where she is also the president of the Black Student Union. Alexus is currently working as a Programming and Outreach Intern at the American Documentary organization.

Alexus continues to build her voice as a filmmaker who centers Black people and other marginalized groups. She is deeply committed to dismantling anti-blackness, ableism, racist structures, and gender norms by telling untold stories of marginalized people. Alexus continues to learn and expand her frameworks inside and outside the classroom to reconceptualize, reimagine, liberate, and challenge worlds and environments where these structures of oppression no longer exist.
