Kirsten D'Andrea Hollander is a full-time professor at the Maryland Institute College of Art, where she mentors the thesis films in the MFA Filmmaking program. Equipped with an undergraduate degree in Painting from MICA in 1988, she turned to documentary filmmaking after receiving an MFA in Imaging and Digital Arts from UMBC in 1997. Her two-fold passion is bringing communities together and telling authentic stories that celebrate humanity. Hollander has directed, shot, edited and produced numerous short documentaries in Baltimore City to support the public-school system and the arts. In 2011 Hollander was selected for an Independent Filmmaker Project Fellowship to launch her first feature length documentary Us, Naked: Trixie & Monkey, which premiered with the DOC NYC film festival in 2014. In 2015, Us, Naked: Trixie & Monkey was awarded Best International Feature Length Documentary at the Netherland’s DOCfeed Film Festival and Best Feature Length Documentary at New York’s Coney Island Film Festival. The film went into international distribution with Random Media/The Orchard in 2017. Kirsten is thrilled to be co-directing her new feature length documentary, Anatomy of Wings with her longtime friend, Nikiea Redmond. Based in Baltimore
