Alison Duke worked as a music journalist before falling into producing music videos for Toronto urban artists such as KOS, the Rascals and Nelly Furtado in the mid-'90s. Her first feature documentary, Raisin' Kane: a rapumentary (2000), following the trials and tribulations of indie rappers Citizen Kane, became a cult classic and earned several awards. She also worked as Senior Segment Producer for Chum Television's Gemini-winning documentary series, Sex TV, where she made short documentaries about the sexualisation of women in music videos and video games. Other films either produced or directed by Alison such as A Deathly Silence, Sisters in Cinema and the eco-hit Garbage! The Revolutions Starts at Home have screened in many festivals. She is currently directing Going Down the Road, a feature documentary about the legacy of trans activist Victor Juliette Mukasa and the rise of queer African activism.
