A no-bullshit web series starring Rain Valdez, Sterling Jones and Alexandra Grey. Razor Tongue explores the complexities of finding a voice of self-love in a world filled with misogyny and discrimination.
Belle (Valdez), a trans woman who exposes the damaging behaviors of certain men for her own personal fulfillment is antagonized by Ariel (Grey), a WOKE AF radio personality, into publicly calling out someone she loves (Jones), ultimately becoming the epitome of toxic “call out” culture.
THE MAKING OF RAZOR TONGUE:
Razor Tongue employs 80% trans, queer, female and POC identified people in front of and behind the camera. An important component to creator Rain Valdez who is the first Asian-American transgender member of the Time’s Up Movement.
The seven-part series was crowdfunded, shot in 4 days and has an all-female directing team: Natalie Heltzel, Sarah Poynter, Kalena Ranoa and Puppett. Ava Benjamin Shorr serves as DP. The story itself takes transgender storytelling into the future, leaving transitional & gender plotlines behind.
