Dudley Alexis is an independent filmmaker whose passion is bringing to the world little- known facts about his native land Haiti, while also dispelling certain misconceptions by shedding a light on a rich Haitian culture and the African Diaspora experience at large. He wrote, filmed, directed and edited “Liberty in a Soup”, which he completed in early 2016. The documentary was inspired by a chance encounter with a West African cab driver who questioned Alexis about the fame and significance of Soup Joumou, the national dish of Haiti, which commemorates the island nation’s independence from France.
“Liberty in a Soup” is Alexis’ first feature documentary. His previous works include short documentaries/ narratives, a post-production producer for the Miccosukee Magazine -which showcased the life of the Miccosukee Tribe of Florida and other local South Florida issues. He continues to use his medium as a tool for social awareness and change.
