Arielle Knight is a New York-based documentary filmmaker and creative producer whose primary artistic impulse is simply to make less of what is too much and more of what is not enough. Mining the absurd, the mythological and the mundane, the work of her life and practice seeks to center and recover the multiplicity of Black experiences and the narrative possibilities therein. Through her own filmmaking practice and in collaboration with like-minded creators, Arielle aims to inundate the world with the dreams, visions and beauty of Black lives on screen. She is a graduate of Wesleyan University and the New School for Public Engagement, where she received an MA in Media Studies & Documentary Filmmaking. She has since produced work for audiences at Sundance, MoMA Doc Fortnight, Camden, BlackStar, Big Sky, Milwaukee and Sheffield Documentary film festivals. Her work has been sustained through the support of the Jacob Burns Creative Culture Fellowship, the NYC Women’s Fund for Media in association with the New York Foundation for the Arts and Queen Collective.
