A Self Made Man

Transgender Feature Film

A documentary film by Lori Petchers that takes a candid look at what it means to be transgender, told through an intimate portrait of trans youth advocate Tony Ferraiolo. Preceded by: A 51-year-old transwoman contends with the many challenges of returning to college basketball after a 30 year absence in Gender Games.  The Cost of Gender is a multimedia project on the state of Transgender healthcare in the U.S. and why Americans are traveling abroad to get it. Three animators tell a story of transition—from male to female and from despondency to happiness. Using recorded interview material and representative artwork, Teagan touches on the fear and loneliness of living in the closet, and the joy and confidence that comes with stepping into the light.
