“Driven more by style and attitude than by narrative, this freeform adaptation of Michelle Tea’s cult novel/memoir is always stimulating…” Variety

Detailed Synopsis: Valencia is a collaboration between a national community of queer filmmakers to adapt the underground classic memoir into a kaleidoscopic vision of San Francisco’s vibrant Mission District in the early 1990s, before the dot-com apocalypse, when the neighborhood functioned as a low-rent playground for a generation of punk lesbians who came of age during the birth of the Queer Nation. Valencia documents the rise of a punk lesbian diaspora through the experience of Michelle, a single rootless twenty-something searching for sex and love, drugs and adventure.
