In 2016, his film Keep Quiet premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival and won ‘Most Valuable Documentary’ at Berlin’s Cinema for Peace Awards. The film, which follows a Hungarian far-right politician on a personal journey as he discovers his Jewish heritage, was subsequently purchased by Netflix and received theatrical distribution.
Following the success of Keep Quiet, Holder produced and directed an upcoming feature documentary on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. With remarkable access to key leaders and stakeholders on all sides of the discourse, the film brings to life one of the most deeply divisive and historic conflicts of all time.
Not one to shy away from controversial topics, Holder produced and directed Unprecedented, a groundbreaking three-part docu-series which included exclusive access to President Donald J. Trump and his family as they embarked on his presidential re-election campaign. The series documents the campaign trail during the 2020 presidential election and into the aftermath that led to the events of January 6th – all told by the Trump family themselves.
Alex captured hours of extraordinary interviews and behind-the-scenes footage from the sitting President of the United States as well as members of the Trump family and administration. The series uncovers how the Trump dynasty evolved, as well as how their rhetoric led to one of the most consequential political events in recent U.S. history.
