Phoria is an intimate view of five AFAB (assigned female at birth) trans* people with dysphoria, re: chest. It was shot entirely on black and white 16mm film and hand processed. Phoria started as a simple and straight forward idea about showcasing non-binary people and their bodies. It soon developed into a deep and intimate inquiry into identity, self, trans-ness, and the infinite and intricate complexities of transgender people and their experiences in life and existing within their bodies that they often times feel estranged to.
