Deja Gordon

Director & Producer Filmmak(Her)

Growing up in the hood of Oakland and the suburbs of Sacramento molded Deja into the intellect she is today. Originally, a Production Designer/Producer, Deja takes her talents to a new journey with her directorial debut, Shea Buttah.

Director Statement

I personally made Shea Buttah to not only express the wins and woes of being black but of also being a woman. I personally strive to be an advocate for equal rights. I believe that starts with educating people. Since they can’t all live our experience, I decided to give them a taste of what it’s like to be a “double minority” in this society.
