Silver Femme is a digital ode to the moon; a poetic film that envisions a future and space where trans people are safe. The eponymous figure’s shifting femininity serves as a visual focal point for the narrator’s lamentations on love and the possibilities trans women and femmes hold.
Collaboration was an integral component of our creative process. Our small team includes a poet, a stylist, a makeup artist, and a harpist. I am continually inspired and blessed to have worked with this team, composed entirely of queer folks: a reminder that SIlver Femme continues the legacy of trans and queer liberation and worldmaking.
