Alexandr Beran

Director - I'm Sorry Alligator

Alexandr Beran (born 11 August 1978) is a writer, filmmaker, and actor. Beginning in California, he studied journalism and was editor-in-chief of Sacramento City College’s Mainline Magazine.

Upon moving to Oregon, Beran began studying Digital Film and Video at the Art Institute of Portland. He continues to do so, and his professional work includes Jarmila’s Book, a documentary on designer bookbinder Jarmila Sobota, who escaped from the Czech Republic under Soviet occupation. 

Beran is currently working with Portland-based dancers, producing films that tie performance with narrative, as in Bicycle Tut and Memoria - both released on the web in the fall of 2013.
