dear dad, love maria

My senior thesis animated film about a transwoman writing a letter to her disapproving father the night before her reassignment surgery.

Dear Dad, Love Maria has been shown in five countries at various film festivals and has won awards such as Best Animation from the Austin Gay and Lesbian International Film Festival in 2009 where it was also nominated for the Iris Prize.
