AUTHENTICALLY US: STORIES FROM THE TRANSGENDER COMMUNITY introduces viewers to a diverse group of transgender and gender-diverse people using interactive virtual reality (VR).
Are you new to transgender concepts? Want to learn how to be a good ally? Join us for two short films, and then stick around for a presentation and discussion. Bring all your questions to this educational evening, and come away with a working vocabulary and a more solid understanding of how to be supportive to trans and gender-nonconforming folks!
Part road movie, part experimental animation, part found-footage collage, PATERNAL RITES takes its inspiration from podcasts like This American Life and Radiolab and filmmakers such as Jenni Olson and Marlon Riggs to deeply explore the American family and its false dreams of normalcy.
Fresh from its premiere at SXSW comes an incredibly timely film about Tina, a young transwoman, and her grandmother Eliana, as they navigate Tina’s transition and their struggle to build a life as undocumented immigrants in New York City.
Tired of impersonal dating apps? Looking for a way to meet other queer/trans folks in a friendly environment? Look no further!
