Film Screening and Q&A: REAL BOY

SAN FRANCISCO-- Gray Area Foundations for the Arts and KQED Independent Lens are hosting a screening of documentary film REAL BOY. Featuring a panel discussion with the filmmaker Shaleece Haas, and live musical performances from film protagonists Bennett and Joe Stevens. 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.
