Alicia Anabel Santos

Creador Pictures
Producer, Writer
New York
Alicia Anabel is a proud New York-born Dominicana who is passionate about writing works that empower and inspire women to find their voices, speak up and demand that they be respected. A self-identified Latina Lesbian Writer, Performance Artist, Producer, Playwright, and Activist, who after reading one too many stories about women she could not wholly relate to, decided to write her own tales that would honor women throughout Latin America and at the same time be representative of the American-born Latina experience.

Currently, she is completing a historical fiction novel titled The Daughters of the Revolution and is work-shopping a one-woman show titled I WAS BORN.

She's worked for renowned magazines BusinessWeek, Glamour and Domino, but it was an article published in Urban Latino Magazine, "Two Cultures Marching to One Drum," that gained the attention of Producer Renzo Devia. He invited her to partner with him on a project that will change the way the world sees color and race relations in Latin America, and in 2008, Alicia joined Creador Pictures as writer and co-producer of its first documentary, "Afro Latinos: La Historia Que Nunca Nos Contaron."

Alicia lives in Harlem, NYC with her eighteen-year-old daughter Courtniana. She works as a freelance writer and activist against sexual and physical abuse towards women and children. She attended New York University and Rhode Island College.
