Alicia Krupskaya, BFA, is a filmmaker and production designer residing in Brooklyn, NY.

Born and raised within a show-business family in Wisconsin, Krupskaya grew up drawing on pamphlets in church pews, napping on coats backstage, and watching her parents perform on hundreds of stages. This upbringing is reflected her films, which often center around family businesses, performative life, and women’s narratives.

Krupskaya spent two years at Interlochen Arts Academy, where she was trained in visual arts media such as construction, fiber arts, installation, sculpture. At SVA, she incorporated that into the producing and directing of her own films.

Krupskaya is currently working on her thesis film, a documentary telling the story of her sister’s retirement from an elite swimming career.
