About this submission
This story stems from my desire to explore the experience of self-identifying as trans. The directorial challenge comes from the internal nature of this self-reckoning, one that often happens in the mind when isolated from the world and when the body is finally treated with enough care to navigate all that has been repressed.
Honoring the complexity of this dialogue between body and spirit is necessary for my goal of expanding our social understanding of dysphoria. I am particularly curious about how the musical and horror genres can work together to portray an experience that is simultaneously frightening and euphoric.
