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.



Anthony and Becerra will also continue to develop their indie QTPOC company, creating work opportunities for community artists who share their values and vision.

We co-founded AdeRisa Productions because we wanted to create films on sovereign artistic ground with content and form that served our stories.

She and her wife created AdeRisa Productions, giving way to films such as “Forgiving Heart.”

...(I)f we’re making queer people of color films, and we are politically conscious artists, the last thing we want to do is recreate a non-nurturing environment for our cast and crew.
