Transgender Mixed Shorts
They, Limina, Nicky, Cautious Birth, In This Skin, Flora, Walk for Me, Where We Are Now, Sis, Jordy in Transitland, The Wonderful Affair

Here’s a collection of 11 narrative and documentary shorts about being transgender, genderqueer, or intersex around the globe. Canada: In THEY, Alex was born in a female body. His mental image of himself is male, but his peers see him as a young woman. A curious gender-fluid child embarks on a path that will forever change the lives of fellow townspeople in Limina. United States: NICKY asks, "What is gender anyway but a compilation of disappointing, rigid expectations?" Cautious Birth is composed of audio from a 4-hour conversation that led the filmmaker to say 'I'm a woman' for the first time. In This Skin is a narrative exploring the real-life stories of transgender youth. Flora is exposed to prejudice when she uses the women’s bathroom during a visit to a cafe. Walk For Me is a coming-out story where Hassan explores his trans identity in NYC's underground ballroom scene and the night his mother catches him in drag. United Kingdom: Where We Are Now is an insight into the changing relationship between a daughter and her trans parent as they embark on the road to transition. In Sis, two estranged sisters reconcile their differences during a night where honesty is the only policy. Netherlands: Jordy in Transitland is on the brink of her physical transition. Wandering in the realm between man and woman, she feels that the dichotomy is more poignant than ever. Turkey: In The Wonderful Affair, we see a portrait of Harika, a child of Kurdish refugees in Izmir and a trans woman who survives by prostitution.
