Directed by Rain Valdez
A trans woman named Tori goes on a blind date with a man named Ryan – the same name as her ex. Tori and Ryan hit it off, but can she date another Ryan after swearing them off for good?
83 minsFrom charming narratives to experimental musical shorts, these films are jam packed with stories from the queer, trans, and gender nonconforming communities; from dealing with everyday dysphoria to coming home for Thanksgiving for the first time after transitioning. In HARD PACK, a young trans guy (played by model/musician Madison Paige) takes too much testosterone and experiences the rush of consequences; a queer Vietnamese American teen attempts to piece together and understand their mom's experience as a Vietnam War refugee in NUOC; and a young Israeli transgender man reconnects with his childhood friend for the first time since his transition in THE FRIEND FROM TEL AVIV.
