COMES THE MORNING

Transgender Documentary Shorts
Nidal, Genderize, The Son I Never Had, The 36-Year-Old Virgin, Princess of Everyday Life

In this collection of 5 shorts, transgender voices from around the world tell their courageous stories. Lebanon: Fourteen-year-old Nidal is one of the 4.8 million Syrains who have been displaced by war. Born female, Nidal has identified as a boy since he was nine years old. As his body matures, he is forced to navigate the complexity of his circumstances in the confines of a refugee camp. Canada: What do kids know about gender? Probably more than you think. In Genderize, director Chase Joynt sat down with several children to talk about gender, puberty, school, and parents in 2012 and revisited these topics four years later. United States: The Son I Never Had is a deeply personal and harrowing video diary of an intersex person. The 36-Year-Old Virgin is a sweet coming-of-middle-age sex documentary. From celibate teenage bible thumper to post-teen lesbian, Skyler, now trans masculine, feels he missed out on something during his youth: sex with a man. Skyler reaches out to his community. They share their own stories of various sexual 'firsts" and offer their insight in heart-warming and humorous bedside conversations. Germany: By combining the sensual activity of cooking and a love poem, Princess of Everyday Life gives an insight into the relationship between Dan and Fabian: A coming-out-story through another perspective.
