Join us in the 3rd floor Community Meeting Room for the first screening in a two-part series of documentaries about transgender life.
Real Boy (2016) is an intimate story of a family in transition. As 19-year-old Bennett Wallace navigates early sobriety, late adolescence, and the evolution of his gender identity, his mother makes her own transformation from resistance to acceptance of her trans son. Along the way, both mother and son find support in their communities, reminding us that families are not only given, but chosen.
Real Boy has screened at more than 70 festivals worldwide, received 20 awards, and was broadcast on PBS’ Independent Lens on June 19, 2017.
Director Shaleece Haas will be on hand to talk about the movie and answer questions after the screening.
The series continues tomorrow evening with a screening of three short documentaries.
