Ji Strangeway is driven by the persistent, frenetic pull of the universe.
A film director, author, and poet, Strangeway creates from the margins of gender, orientation, and circumstance. Her stories ride the shoulders of the misunderstood anti-hero, exploring the crash zones between society and self, the physical and the existential.
Strangeway’s LGBTQ short film, Nune, draws on the sacred bond of first love. Her cinematic style emerges in her written work.
Her hybrid graphic novel, Red as Blue, introduces YA readers to a unique cross-genre aesthetic. The portrayal of two kids burning to transcend forbidden love in a culture clashing battlefield ignites an allegorical “Lord of the Flies meets Romeo & Juliet” and in its beneficence, a street-smart West Side Story on the verge of Bowling for Columbine.
Strangeway’s work is an unconventional call to action. Her words are for the dreamers and idealists.
