** On June 17 at 6:00pm, Justice in Motion host Daniel Swan lead a discussion with the film’s director, Sam Hampton. The panel discussion is available to view on SJFFI’s Facebook page. **


** Co-presented with Social Justice Film Festival and co-sponsored by Meaningful Movies Project. **

To commemorate Pride 2020, join us for a special event centered around Change in the Family, which screened at SJFF 2018.

The documentary chronicles the gender transition of Zo Thorpe, his family’s response, and the complexities of young adulthood, biracial identity, and coming out as trans and gender-nonconforming.

“Change in the Family is a rare film,” says Aurora Martin, festival managing director. “Watching it, you witness firsthand what a spectrum of emotions it is for a family when one of its members comes out as transgender. You also get a moving personal account of that journey as if you were a family member yourself going through the scrapbook of pictures and videotaped memories of Zo growing up from childhood to adulthood!”
