Kim Alexander lives as close to the city as you can get and still be country. The furthest an egg travels from his farm is 30 miles, a
distance unheard of in our global food economy. Though a staple in American diets, the origins of our eggs can be a mystery.
Publicly-educated in Texas, Keeley hopes to make information appealing and useful. She is currently seeking a dual degree in the College of Communication as well as the College of Liberal Arts. In 2007 she received an Undergraduate Research Fellowship for her study of eggs, including a written analysis of eggs in American food culture and leading to her short film, Alexander Family Farm. She currently works as a hostess in Austin (at a restaurant that serves Alexander Farm eggs), and is in the research stage for a written thesis about food blogs. This fall Keeley plans to work as an intern for the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center with her eyes on college graduation in spring 2010.
Alexander Family Farm is an official selection of the UFRAME International Film Festival 2008 in Portugal, as well as SXSW Film Festival 2009 . The film has also screened at the University of Texas as well as during the Slow Food Nation conference summer 2008 in San Francisco.
