We believe that storytelling is a powerful and radical form of healing and can plant the seeds of restorative justice. Because of this, we partnered with a mental health education organization called Lost Got Found (https://www.lostgotfound.org/) to create a documentary series that chronicles the experiences of trans people who face mental health issues on a daily basis in Appalachia. Seeing and hearing from those directly impacted by these issues provides audiences with a personalized connection to these stories and people. It is for this reason that we aim to complete this project through film above all other mediums.
Come see Transilient at the Philly Trans Wellness Conference. We will have a table with tons of goodies and will be talking about our upcoming projects! Come see us :)
