Alison Guessou is an Independent Filmmaker
As a filmmaker, Guessou's aim is to tell those stories that are not often told, and to bring to light the characters that we rarely see. Her belief in having diverse perspectives represented behind the camera will add to today’s narrative landscape. Her goal is to develop feature films that bring the experience of our communities to life; not only stories which speak to the concerns of our time, but also provide entertaining portrayals through diverse cast and crew.
Prior to filmmaking, Guessou worked as a Project Manager for multiple agencies. With a Bachelor's in Business Administration and a Master's in Project Management, she used her extensive education and vast array of real world experience to launch Djini Productions, a company dedicated to enhancing the dynamics of film production. Guessou is a writer, director, and producer. Her directorial work has been selected for both national and international film festivals. Guessou’s credits include the 10-time festival nominated short film "911"; and 6-time nominated short film "What Marilyn Didn't Know". She is currently in post-production on the short film "Happily Married After", and working towards her first feature film "E.I." (working title).
Alison Guessou volunteers as a board member for the MN Women in Film and Television Chapter, and is also a recipient of the Jerome Foundation 2019 Minnesota Film, Video and Digital Production Grant.
