Alicia Krupskaya, BFA, is a filmmaker, author, and artist residing in Milwaukee, WI.

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

Krupskaya has made multiple films; Sunnyside Queens is a comedy covering the strained relationships between three generations of women in a salon in Queens. Her most recent film, Survival Mode, is a documentary following her sister’s elite swimming career, and exposes the problems of the culture therein.

She is currently writing a book called Esûne, and Those Who Call Her Home, a science-fantasy epic based in a world threatened by a changing climate. It tackles themes of spirituality, environmental issues, and planetary diplomacy in a fantasy world of elves, gnomes, and newly-arrived humans.
