Jordan (he/they) is a self-described “visual lyricist” whose films merge visual, musical, and poetic languages. Their work draws from family and community history and artistic collaborations to expand upon Black and queer life and culture, creating “films that remind us to make new ways for ourselves and our kin around us.” Their work includes the short film One Magenta Afternoon, which uses jazz music as a bridge for its characters to connect with the spirit world. Their music video Ode to Philly features poet and Pew Fellow Ursula Rucker. Jordan currently serves as assistant director of programs at cinéSPEAK and teaches film at the University of the Arts. They earned an MFA in screenwriting from the Feirstein Graduate School of Cinema at Brooklyn College and a BA in Black voice and cultural studies from Muhlenberg College.
