Michelle Tea’s novel Valencia is being adapted into a feature film. The project is made up of 21 individual short film chapters by a variety of artists and filmmakers. This is a fundraiser for the cast and crewof “Chapter 5”. The chapter is directed by Hilary Goldberg, produced by Shani Heckman, and features Tanya Wischerath as Michelle, Machete Mendías as Iris, and Jaq Schmitz as Laurel.
