FILM SCREENING and Q&A: REAL BOY
SAN RAFAEL-- Film screening of documentary film REAL BOY followed by a Q&A with Bennett Wallace, Joe Stevens, and director Shaleece Haas, hosted by California Film Institute.
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.
