Kyna Morgan is based in Indiana, USA. She founded Her Film Project in 2010 as way to support women filmmakers but has since broadened the mission in order to focus on the importance of inclusive storytelling across race, gender, age, sexuality, and ability as a means to achieving equality in film. Kyna holds the Master of Arts in Global Film and Television from the University of Hertfordshire (UK) for which she wrote a dissertation on the film Get Out (2017). Her book, Woke Horror: Sociopolitics, Genre, and Blackness in Get Out was published in early 2018.
A published researcher in film history, she was invited to contribute several articles on early African American women filmmakers which now appear in the Women Film Pioneers Project at Columbia University (New York). Her current academic research includes whiteness and capitalism in U.S. film and television as relates to global recession narratives.
