“Driven more by style and attitude than by narrative, this freeform adaptation of Michelle Tea’s cult novel/memoir is always stimulating…Among the more notable segments are a magic-mushroom trip sequence partially done as claymation” – Variety

Based on Michelle Tea’s novel of the same name, Valencia is a multi-filmmaker collaborative feature film that premiered to a sold out Castro Theatre at Frameline 2013. Valencia won the Jury Award for Best Experimental Feature at the 2013 Polari Film Festival and the Jury Award for Best Narrative Feature at Chicago Reeling 2013. Goldberg directed Chapter 5 and produced the feature film with Tea.

Valencia is listed as the 48th of the 200 best lesbian, bisexual, and queer movies of all time on Autostraddle. It’s also 87th for best of the decade. And comes highly recommended!
