Slaying Dragons (in production)
As a gay, Christian, Latino, American, surfing, bullfighting, flamenco dancing young man, the protagonist of Slaying Dragons often struggles to balance the many facets of his complex identity.
In a society where rigid identity categories have become central to how we understand who we are, Slaying Dragons is a documentary that quietly asks us to see all of the deep complexity inherent in a single person’s life.
Slaying Dragons is currently in post-production.
