ATLAS A LEE-REID
Atlas Lee-Reid (they/he) is a queer, non-binary film director, producer, and animator based in Brooklyn, NY. Raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Atlas got his start in stage acting, eventually leading them to pursue a degree in Film and Television Production from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. Spanning across a variety of media, from 35mm film to radio and hand-drawn rotoscope, the majority of their work focuses on how complicated relationships born in families and communities can deeply affect how we see and experience the world.
Atlas' most recent short film, “Dinner With George”, won the Géza Decsy Memorial Production Award in 2019, and he recently traveled to Oaxaca, Mexico to screen their video art piece, “Barely Breathing”.
