Dreams of Another Body

This combination of dramatic and documentary shorts gives a diverse and global perspective on the dreams, aspirations, and frustrations of transgender, intersex, and gender non-conforming people. The riveting multi-award-winning documentary PRISONER OF SOCIETY enters the world and mind of a young transgender woman whose parents have kept her a prisoner in her own home for over a decade in the country of Georgia. In the beautifully moody Iranian film BODIES, a transgender actor in love with her straight director begs her father for a sex change operation to become a biological woman. SWITCH is the fantastical tale of a teenager who finds that she has the magical ability to switch back and forth between genders. In I AM MACKENZIE a skateboarding teen growing up in rural Texas has their first sexual encounter in the back of a truck, leaving them more confused than ever. In OUR TRANSITION, a filmmaker explores his transitioning at 13 years old through the perspective of his parents; and A NORMAL GIRL brings the widely unknown struggles of intersex people to light through the story of Chicago intersex activist Pidgeon Pagonis.
