Timothy Greenfield-Sanders‘ The Trans List will be screening on October 25 at NewFest in New York City, as part of the Special Centerpiece Presentation of the prestigious LGBT film festival. The documentary will be followed by a Q&A with Timothy and some of the film’s subjects. Tickets are only $16 and can be purchased here.
The Trans List features interviews by trans author and advocate Janet Mock, and explores the experiences of Americans who identify as transgender. The film allows a diverse group of individuals to tell their stories in their own words, addressing identity, family, career, love, struggle, and accomplishment. (Description courtesy newfest.org.)
“While many of the interviewees touch on issues of abuse, rejection, and discrimination, as well as the still-diffuse trans-community realities of drugs, prostitution and jail time,” noted The Hollywood Reporter in its review of the film, “what unifies the subjects is their candor and proud self-acceptance, for some more hard-won than others. That stirring note is perfectly encapsulated by the Velvet Underground song ‘I’m Set Free’ over the end credits.”
