Alexandra Roxo
NATALIA LEITE and ALEXANDRA ROXO, who work under collaborative moniker PURPLE MILK, are two Brazilian-American gals who met mid-Saturn return and decided to team up as they navigated the changes caused by planetary shifts and those inherent in the film world. Together they co-write, co-direct, and co-star in their own work, much of which aims to comment on cultural themes around spirituality, sexuality, and the complexities of their generation. They are currently in post-production for their web show, Be Here Now-ish (February 2014 release), and in prep for a feature film, Bare, that will be shot in New Mexico. This past year they have teamed up with VICE Media on a number of projects, including original series Every Woman and Serrano Shoots Cuba, a documentary following the work of Andres Serrano.

Queer Cinema: From Homo to Human

(4) Comments | Posted August 16, 2012 | 10:49 PM

The night before my ex-girlfriend broke up with me, she stood with her arms crossed over her chest, by the hot buffet at her office's holiday party, and said, "Why would you sell your movie to a gay film distributor?" She shoved a dripping barbequed rib into her mouth, asked...
