Queer Rites of Passage, Letters to Joseph
Queer Rites of Passage is a compilation of shorts by various filmmakers that marks significant milestones in our lives that vary from the hetero-patriarchal rites we’re taught to grow into.

Letters to Joseph is a short film about my relationship to my former student, Joseph, now serving life after a successful reentry experience following a 25 years sentence. I continue to struggle making sense of the violence he perpetrated, and grapple with questions of healing and forgiveness through our exchange of letters.
