Executive Produced, Produced & Co-Produced by AdeRisa Productions
AdeRisa Productions is a California Limited Liability Company founded in 2012 by Adelina Anthony and Marisa Becerra. We are dedicated to producing bold, entertaining and educational Two Spirit, LGBTQ+POC films with an emphasis on Xicana/o/x, Chicanx, Mexican and Latinx stories.
Since our company’s inception, we have created inclusive sets comprised of primarily queer Xicanas, queer women of color, and people of color. Our sets have ZERO TOLERANCE for racism, homophobia, transphobia, sexism, classism, and any other behavior that disrupts the harmony and purpose of our work together.
We nurture professional and emerging talent from our communities both behind and in front of the camera. We support our indie crews with a holistic work model that includes a spiritual practice and/or elder on set. We feed our teams well.
AdeRisa Productions believes we all benefit from stories that explore the humanity of our most resilient communities. We are invested in characters who are multi-layered and living at the intersections of race/ethnicity, class, gender, sexuality, spirituality, and much more.
We hope our films abet in fostering critical dialogue and social change; because we believe and practice this indigenous tenet: our stories are medicine.
