Directing Reel & Bio

Born in Mannheim, Germany to a Palestinian father and German mother, Lexi Alexander, a former World Kickboxing Champion, worked her way up from stunt woman to Oscar-nominated director with her live action short film Johnny Flynton, a drama about a boxer. She has helmed feature films including the SXSW Jury & Audience Award winning drama Green Street Hooligans, Marvel's Punisher: War Zone and Lifted. Though she has ventured into television, where she has developed shows with multiple production companies and directed an episode of the CW's hit show ARROW as well as CBS' SUPERGIRL and LIMITLESS, Alexander has been tempted back to the big screen for the tragic real-life story of Chris Benoit and the biopic called Crossface.
