Punishment doesn’t heal. Honesty is a start.
This work stems from an early childhood sexual trauma shared with my Mother and unconditional love and compassion she imprinted upon me.
The film VIRGIN is a therapeutic piece for me. I’m in debt to Beverly (Pitzer) Markiewicz and Tree Ring Productions for the filming session, which the team agreed to on trust of payment that I was unable to complete with a crowdfunding campaign. My gratitude goes to Beverly for access to the footage and permission to finish the production anyway.
Concept for the final production of VIRGIN began with a spontaneous session between collaborating artists.
Footage for VIRGIN is with thanks to the Tree Sisters network and financial contributions from the following: Charlotte Fuller, Kathleen Rouleau, Kathleen Leachman, Ernest Reed, Deborah Bowers, B.J. West, Dave Hampton, Catherine Campion, Cristina Russo, Pollyanna Darling, Jazmine Raymond, Carolee Carlson, Jennifer Weiss, Maureen Freehill, Gloria Gypsy, Clare Hedin, Suellen Primost, Beverly Pitzer Markiewicz, Dan Jason, Kristin Tieche, Judy b., Ben Raby, Alexi Francis
