FILM SCREENING AND COMMUNITY CONVERSATION: REAL BOY
BERKELEY-- Indie Lens Pop-Up is a neighborhood series that brings people together for film screenings and community-driven conversations. Featuring documentaries seen on PBS's Independent Lens, Indie Lens Pop-Up draws local residents, leaders and organizations to discuss what matters most, from newsworthy topics, to family and relationships. Make friends, share stories, and join the conversation. Indie Lens Pop Up is hosting a screening of REAL Boy in Berkeley.
REAL BOY is an intimate story of a family in transition. As 19-year-old Bennett Wallace navigates early sobriety, late adolescence, and the evolution of his gender identity, his mother makes her own transformation from resistance to acceptance of her trans son. Along the way, both mother and son find support in their communities, reminding us that families are not only given, but chosen. REAL BOY has screened at more than 70 festivals worldwide, received 20 awards, and will be broadcast on PBS’ Independent Lens in June 2017.
