Alicia Soller (she/her) is a Chicago-based filmmaker of the Filipinx diaspora exploring identity, memory, and intergenerational healing through the lens of the personal. She seeks solidarity, solace, and humanity through nonfiction storytelling, unearthing stories at the margins and the beauty of our lived experiences through meditative imagery and oral history.
Her short film "What We Carry” (2021) follows a nurse navigating the COVID-19 pandemic amid staggering rates of death among fellow Filipino nurses. Alicia’s most recent project "Of the Heart” (2022) is a personal essay film that reveals the spiritual threads that connect mother and daughter. She's earned her Master of Fine Arts degree in Documentary Media at Northwestern University and now works as an Associate Producer for the WTTW docuseries "Chicago Stories" and as a Marketing Coordinator for Mezcla Media Collective in Chicago.
