Alexis Krasilovsky, Irwin Award

Grateful to have received The Irwin Award (Industry Recognition of Writers In the News) for "Best #MeToo Novel of the Year" for my first novel, "Sex and the Cyborg Goddess."

I'm thrilled to be getting my #MeToo novel out there. What we are fighting for today is for a true expression of a righteous anger that has not gone away and must be addressed for what it really is: A cry for change.


Film adaptation workshop with American professional at EMK
Alexis Krasilovsky conducted a five-day workshop on screenplay adaptation for the International Academy of Film and Media in Dhaka, Bangladesh, as well as serving as one of two American delegates at the International Conference of Women in Cinema and the "West Meets East" Conference at the Dhaka International Film Festival.

The world has changed considerably since I embarked on my first global documentary feature, Women Behind the Camera.  While screening that film - and the shorter version, Shooting Women - at dozens of festivals around the world -- in Bangladesh, Canada, France, India, Mexico, Poland, Sweden, Turkey and the U.S. -- I met many wonderful filmmakers who inspired me to make a second global documentary.

Working transculturally and transnationally on Let Them Eat Cake with Co-Producers Sanjoy Ghosh (India), Hamidou Soumah, Ph.D. (US/France/Republic of Guinea) and Unit Directors including Rosa Carrillo (Mexico), Shabnam Ferdousi (Bangladesh), Moussa Kemoko Diakité (Republic of Guinea), Christopher Garambullo (New Mexico), Christian Lanazca (Peru), Ajit Nag (India) and others on this complex film about the world hunger crisis makes me hopeful that what we have to say together can inspire change.

Women Behind the Camera and Shooting Women won five Best Documentary awards; I was also honored to received a Tribute Award at the San Francisco Women’s Film Festival “for achievements in independent cinema,” and a lifetime achievement award at the Gdansk DocFilm Festival. The book, Shooting Women: Behind the Camera, Around the World, by Harriet Margolis, Alexis Krasilovsky, and Julia Stein, (Intellect Press: London, 2015) is available at

Let Them Eat Cake screenings to date include: the Paris Independent Film Festival (where it won Best Documentary Feature); the Dhaka International Film Festival (Bangladesh); the Ethnografilm Festival (Paris, France); the Filmmor Film Festival (Istanbul, Turkey); the International Documentary & Short Film Festival of Kerala (India); Festival de Cine de Todos Santos (Mexico); High Falls Film Festival (New York); the Museum of Ethnography (Geneva, Switzerland); Female Eye Film Festival (Toronto, Canada); La Femme International Film Festival (Beverly Hills, California); and the Sole Luna Film Festival (where it won Special Jury Mention for "Best Editing"). The film is now available on Amazon Video Prime.

In the meantime, I’ve released several of my previously-released independent films and videos on DVD: End of the Art World (featuring Andy Warhol and Bob Rauschenberg), Beale Street (where Martin Luther King, Jr. marched before his assassination), Exile, Blood, and Some Women Writers Kill Themselves - a DVD collection of my cinépoems and poetry.  Canyon Cinema also offers some of my work on-line via Fandor and Kanopy.

Most recently, I've written the book Great Adaptations: Screenwriting and Global Storytelling (Routledge: NY/London, October 2017) and a novel entitled Sex and the Cyborg Goddess (under the pseudonym Alexis Rafael), which tackles sexual liberation and sexual assault on a college campus, and sexual harassment in the film industry.

I hope you’ll take a look at my work and let me know what you think.
