Kal Yelle (they/them) is a DIY filmmaker and documentarian who enjoys crafting narratives using experimental techniques. They have a background in analog film (specifically 16mm and Super 8) and cultural theory. Most of their films - fiction and documentary - revolve around the stories and lived experiences of queer and trans individuals.
"I myself am both queer and non-binary. One of my main interests is figuring how to ethically and respectfully represent the truths and stories of individuals belonging to marginalized groups on camera, which I intend to explore in my ongoing work.”
A recent University of Minnesota Graduate, they shoot using a mix of analog 16mm and digital footage, and also like to incorporate 2D animation in their projects.
