NewFest at The Center Presents

The Most Dangerous Year

Wednesday March 20 @ 7:00 pm
Screening Room at The Center, 208 West 13th Street
New York, 10011 United States

New York Premiere
Dir. Vlada Knowlton, USA, 2018, 90 mins
As a dark wave of anti-transgender “bathroom bills” began sweeping across the nation, The Human Rights Campaign published a report identifying 2016 as the most dangerous year for transgender Americans. In this urgent and galvanizing documentary, director Vlada Knowlton focuses on the response from a group of families with transgender kids in Washington State who joined the fight against the wave of discriminatory anti-transgender legislation. With the help of a coalition of state lawmakers and civil rights activists, these families embarked on an uncharted journey of fighting to protect and preserve their children’s human rights and freedoms. Filmmaker and parent to a trans child Vlada Knowlton passionately follows the story and outcome of anti-transgender legislation in Washington–and the heart of the film lies in the stories of the families who accept and support their kids for exactly who they are.
