As a dark wave of anti-transgender “bathroom bills” began sweeping across the nation, The Human Rights Campaign called 2016 the most dangerous year for transgender Americans. Filmmaker Vlada Knowlton captured the ensuing civil rights battle from the perspective of a group of embattled parents – including herself and her husband, parents of a young trans girl– fighting to protect their children from discriminatory laws in their home state. While Knowlton passionately follows the story of anti-transgender legislation, the heart of the film lies in the stories of the families who accept and support their kids for exactly who they are.
Filmmakers: join Vlada Knowlton for Communal Coffee on May 17th at 3:00pm! Communal Coffee is an ongoing series designed to offer a casual environment for budding filmmakers to converse with seasoned professional filmmakers. Expertise has been offered by other participants such as Megan Griffiths (Director of The Night Stalker, Eden), Jeff Unay (Director of The Cage Fighter), and Mark Titus (Founder of August Island Pictures).
