"Emma" is a film about one woman's gender transition - starting from when she was young and just discovering her feelings, to when she transitioned in adulthood.

Producer and Composer, Kristofer Twadell; Camera and Editor, Christine Grost.

San Francisco and Chicago-based composer Kristofer Twadell is an adventurous spirit who is always looking for ways to tell stories through music. Kristofer scores films as well as composes concert music for a variety of different ensembles, both in traditional and hybrid genres. His music is emotionally driven and is often inspired by nature and literature. He is also interested in pairing music with other forms of performance art.

Recently he released a film called "Emma" with collaborator Christine Grost. The soundtrack was composed by Kristofer and recorded by colleagues at SFCM. The film was made possible by SFCM through the Sky Hi Award grant.
