I’ve fairly recently read a book about the hidden sexuality of Little Red Riding Hood through its surprisingly numerous and varied iterations. I don’t know if this video has anything to do with the themes of that book, but it seems to. It’s bloody. It’s sexual. There’s a man who could be a bit of a wolf-like figure. And did I mention it’s bloody? It’s REALLY bloody. With beheadings and such. I wouldn’t have expected this from HEALTH, but there’s an appropriate aura of mystique to it all.

Much of their work unifies their metaphysical interests with their belief that art can positively transform the self and society. They are the Editor-in-Chief of REDEFINE, Interim Managing Editor of South Seattle Emerald, and Co-Chair of the Seattle Arts Commission.

In 2017, Vee released the narrative short film, Searching Skies — which touches on Syrian refugee resettlement in the United States — and co-organized The Seventh Art Stand, a national film and civil rights discussion series against Islamophobia. 2022 sees the release of their next short film, Reckless Spirits, which is a metaphysical, multi-lingual POC buddy comedy for a bleak new era, in anticipation of a feature film.
Vee is passionate about cultural space, the environment, and finding ways to covertly and overtly disrupt oppressive structures. They also regularly share observational human stories through their storytelling newsletter, RAMBLIN’ WITH VEE!, and are pursuing a Master’s in Tribal Resource and Environmental Stewardship under the Native American Studies Department at the University of Minnesota.View all articles
