A natural cinephile, Alejandra studied communications at the Universidad Iberoamericana in Mexico City and completed her training with a graduate degree in communications and sociology from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid. She later took an intensive screenwriting course at the New York Film Academy; also in New York, she has worked for the past seven years as a cultural correspondent and film critic for several media sources, including El Universal.
A regular presence at international film festivals, Alejandra has covered the Cannes Film Festival for over a decade, as well as those in Venice, Rome, New York, Tribeca, San Sebastián, and the Berlinale. She has also written five screenplays; a fiction feature (Film Festivals); and, with the Spanish production company Malvalanda, four documentary shorts, entitled Hielo, Luces del Polo, Luchadoras, and Femei. These last two films were nominated and preselected for Spain’s Goya Awards in 2008 and 2009, respectively, and won prizes at numerous festivals around the world.
