Alex Rafi, or Raƒi, is a rapper, teacher, and filmmaker from Southern Dade County (think Miami, FL).
His music speaks to life on the outskirts and the desire to escape from the comfort (and discomfort) which that brings.
His teaching is predicated on relationship building, personal exploration, and the bridging of the personal, political and the academic.
His fiction films explore hints of magical realism and his nonfiction films aspire to reveal the magic in the real world.
His writing explores everything from the relationships between people and their culture, to the adult angst and political anger of a millennial who’s still solidly in his twenties.
