28 Black Women Horror Filmmakers: Kristina Leath-Malin


Kristina Leath-Malin is a filmmaker, scholar, screenwriter, and digital artist from Detroit who lives in Brooklyn, NY. She has recently completed her second and terminal graduate degree (M.F.A.) at Long Island University in Media Studies with her work My Final Girl: The Black Women of American Horror, and first began her graduate voyage in feminist horror theory with her M.A. published thesis/book, Objectification Repackaged: The Women of 21st Century French Horror. She has traveled through Europe with a performance group and landed in Paris where she began writing. Scripting and having ideas inspired her to return to graduate school after making several short films, wanting to truly understand the mechanics of meaning in cinema. In addition to her film efforts, she has curated four multimedia art exhibitions in New York City. Currently, she is building her internet research and information database for My Final Girl and recently premiered her feminist take on the Stephen King “Dollar Baby” One For The Road (the sequel to Salem’s Lot). Her next project will be based on the mythology of Lillith, the first wife of Adam. (Source)
