Rebecca Adler; 2017; USA; 85 min.
From director (and clinical social worker) Rebecca Adler comes this new feature-length documentary, an interwoven coming-of-age story of seven trans young adults in Austin, Texas. Filmed over three years, this intimate film invites us to travel with our subjects on their journey to adulthood. We watch them face up to family judgment, find voice in DIY punk bands, navigate the unknowns of hormone therapy, and move through the transitions of top surgery—all with courage. Our subjects speak honestly and directly about their lives. Not surprisingly, they are articulate, self-aware, and unafraid to voice provocative beliefs.
