Our friends at the OUTWatch Film Festival first alerted us to our next Rialto Recommends title and recommend it for our monthly OUTWatch screening series which had to be put on hold due to the pandemic closures. DISCLOSURE: TRANS LIVES ON SCREEN takes an unprecedented look at the depiction of transgender people and experiences throughout the history of film and television. Over 100 years of footage, from A Florida Enchantment (1914) to Pose (2018), is woven together with the personal stories of prominent media figures like Laverne Cox, revealing how Hollywood has simultaneously reflected and manufactured our deepest beliefs and anxieties about gender. Disclosure shows both the consequences of depicting marginalized communities without their participation, and the liberatory potential of film and TV when their voices are centered. Roger Moore (the movie critic not the actor) raved "Get past the jargon and you realize what you're watching is one of those landmarks in queer cinema, a "Celluloid Closet" for the transgender community." And CNN said "It's a nuanced look at media's ability to influence the conversation -- to move the needle in terms of public perception -- as well as its limits." Film Threat said "Trans Lives on Screen not only leaves us with the hope that things will improve, but it also shows us how much better the industry is when everyone is included, represented, and respected."
