Phoria is an intimate view of five AFAB (assigned female at birth) trans* people with dysphoria, re: chest. It was shot entirely on black and white 16mm film and hand processed. Phoria started as a simple and straight forward idea about showcasing non-binary people and their bodies. It soon developed into a deep and intimate inquiry into identity, self, trans-ness, and the infinite and intricate complexities of transgender people and their experiences in life and existing within their bodies that they often times feel estranged to.
Since it’s release, Phoria, has been officially selected to screen at ten International Film Festivals: Pensacola LGBT, Pink Life QueerFest, Visionaria, OutReels Cincinnati, Strange Beauty Film Festival, Ozark Shorts, Vilnius LGBT, The WE Film Festival, VISIONS, and the Toronto Queer Film Festival. It won the Grillo & Goldfarb Award at CU in 2015 and it won Best Short Film at VISIONS in 2016.
geode is a 16mm experimental film that’s technique, form, and content symbiotically studies the act of destruction as a form of release and subsequent healing. The film becomes ritual, utilizing external action to create an internal transformation. The images themselves reveal destruction and letting go as the techniques of bleaching, scratching, and destroying the film’s emulsion reveal this process through the experimentation in form. geode’s intent is to invoke the emotions of trauma that lead to destruction and transmute them into an experience of hope and healing.
When thrown into an unexpected, life-threatening situation, I was confronted with a choice. That choice was to stay alone in a hotel, or to go out onto an island in the middle of Lake Titicaca with a shaman who told me he could help me. Later, I learned that I had a deadly infectious parasite under the skin on the left side of my head. I had to trust the shaman and let go of fear. Through the experience of the shamanic healing ritual, I was forced to confront the parts of myself I had denied the light of day. It was the lingering knowledge that I was hiding who I was to become. Transfiguration is a personal, poetic documentary about the intersection of a shamanic healing of a parasitic infection and coming to terms with a transgender identity.
