Alexa Karolinski

Alexa Karolinski is a German-Canadian Berlin native. After studying Art History as an Undergraduate in London, she moved back to Berlin where she worked as the Editorial Assistant for Vice Magazine Germany. Later, she started working for Arte, a French-German TV station, where she directed and wrote culture reports for their daily prime time news show. In between she distributed a photo book, worked in a documentary photo agency and helped her family run a cinema in Berlin. Feeling uninspired by the lack of work in Berlin, she decided to apply to the Social Documentary Program in New York City. If she could she’d instantly start working for Werner Herzog. Alexa was named one of the 25 new faces of independent film in 2012 by Filmmaker Magazine.
