Beyond the Binary

Friday October 25 @ 4:00 pm

This film will also screen on Sunday, 10/27 at 1:30pm

There are more than two genders and these filmmakers explore the deep potential and power in that fact. Trans love, legacies, and longing are finally being brought to the forefront. Exclusively featuring films by trans, nonbinary, and intersex directors, BEYOND THE BINARY demonstrates the extraordinary diversity of experiences, perspectives, and approaches to storytelling in the queer and trans communities.

Total Running Time: 92 min

Q&A to follow

Presented in partnership with The Gender & Family Project of the Ackerman Institute and The Bush Films.
