Ya'Shalan is a filmmaker.

she / they

Fiction work I write-direct and co-produce explores the black feminine gaze, futurism, and the many faces of mortality.


Non-fiction work I produce examines the ideation process and often highlights small business and organizations.


Video work is usually narrative-driven for artists from home, the Bay Area, where you'll also often see me collaborate with Mandela Grocery.


Outside of creative work, I love talking over finger foods about story, romanticism, and astrology.


I now live and work in Chicago, IL.
