Short 1:(I KNOW YOUR) FACE

C. Hudson Hwang; 2014; Canada; 3 min.

Told from the perspective of the narrator, this black-and-white music video explores trans identity across all segments of society, with an overlay of diverse faces over that of the narrator’s, challenging viewers to reconsider their definition of humanity and gender.


Short 2: SUNUNÚ: THE REVOLUTION OF LOVE

Olivia Crellin; 2017; Ecuador; 25 min.; in Spanish with English subtitles

The desire to start a family against all odds puts one couple to the test as they face international scrutiny for their unconventional circumstances. This film shows the challenges they face being trans activists in the public eye while also becoming new parents.
