Pain of Love
Alcee H. Walker is an African American film director from West Palm Beach, FL. Walker attended St. Lawrence University in Canton, NY and graduated in 2011 with a BFA degree in Performance and Communications and a minor in Education. He later went on to graduate studies at the School of Visual Arts in New York, NY where he earned a MFA degree in Social Documentary followed by a MPS Degree in Directing. His film work has been shown at many venues across the country including the Directors Guild of America where he won his first film award for his documentary film, Pain of Love.
