Description

These four shorts meet at the intersection of gender and politics. A group of Muslim trans women stand their ground against social marginalization in secular Malaysia in PASSAGE TO WOMANHOOD; in SPECTRUMS, we follow the social, political, and spiritual lives of ten members of the transgender community in Israel; THAT’S MY BOY is a touching look at the successful and remarkable life of Sonu, a transgender man thriving in India; and capping off this program is SUNUNÚ–THE REVOLUTION OF LOVE, which takes us on a journey with trans dad Fernando Machado as he becomes an international news sensation when he announces that he is pregnant with his trans partner, Diane Rodriguez, in Ecuador. This short is an intimate and touching portrayal of a couple tackling first-time parenthood while they challenge complex ideas of gender roles in their lives and in politics.
