Changing Directions Podcast Series: Leslie Alejandro and Dani de Jesus - Creators of Gold

The filmmaking dynamic duo of Leslie Alejandro and Dani de Jesus joins the Changing Directions interview series to discuss their latest project called Gold, a music video featuring Ella Jay Basco and Ruby Ibarra. The video was screened as part of the 2021 CAAMFest programming and has been receiving critical acclaim from media outlets all across the country.

Leslie Alejandro and Dani de Jesus are filmmakers, sisters, and co-founders of Alejandro Films, along with Leslie's husband Kevin Alejandro (see: Lucifer). We talked about making the music video, working with the Basco family, the incredible Ruby Ibarra, burning down the film industry, and creating space for Filipino representation in American culture. I can't tell you enough how much fun it was chatting with these amazing women. I hope you enjoy listening to Leslie and Dani as much as I enjoyed speaking with them.

Changing Directions is a podcast interview series focused on diverse and emerging filmmakers who are pushing the boundaries of what’s possible for women and people of color while creating amazing films. Listen now and/or download on your favorite podcast format listed below
