Michelle Tea’s legendary queer novel Valencia is being adapted as an omnibus-style feature film. Tea has handpicked her favorite filmmakers to direct each chapter of the story. Read Tea’s interviews with the various directors here.
In Chapter 3, Michelle is hopelessly infatuated with the emotionally unavailable Willa. In order to free up more time to spend with her, Michelle quits her full-time minimum-wage job in favor of a career that she swore she’d never go back to: prostitution.
Our chapter of the film was shot in and around Portland, OR last summer and is now in post-production. We have many expenses to cover including editing, color correction and sound mix, not to mention paying back some of the generous folks who loaned us their money and resources up front to make this shoot happen on very short notice.

Thank you for your support helping us finish our film!
