Ji Strangeway is driven by the persistent, frenetic pull of the universe.
A film director, author, and poet, Strangeway creates from the margins of gender, orientation, and circumstance. Her stories ride the shoulders of the misunderstood anti-hero, exploring the crash zones between society and self, the physical and the existential.
Ji Strangeway: Film Director, Author, Poet
Strangeway embraces the female-centric coming-of-age genre. Her LGBTQ short film Nune draws on the sacred bond of first love. Her unique cinematic style also emerges in her written work, Red as Blue. This hybrid-graphic novel introduces YA readers to a unique cross-genre aesthetic. As noted by AfterEllen, it’s “an addictive, eclectic fusion of styles and identity that blazes a brand-new path for storytelling.”
