SACRAMENTO– California Fresh Film Series: Screening of REAL BOY at Crocker Art Museum
January 4 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm$12
SACRAMENTO– The Crocker Art Museum is proud to present four fresh documentaries that share some of the diverse stories and compelling individuals who make up our state. Each screening will be introduced by John Lightfoot of California Humanities, the grant-making nonprofit that helped fund these films through its California Documentary Project. A Q&A with the filmmakers or subjects will follow some screenings. Members can purchase a series pass for the series and see all four films for the price of three.
In Real Boy, 19-year-old Bennett Wallace navigates sobriety, adolescence, and the evolution of his gender identity, while his mother makes her own transformation from resistance to acceptance of her transgendered son. Along the way, both are reminded that families are not only given, but chosen.
This screening of Real Boy is part of the UC Davis Campus Community Book Project, this year featuring Janet Mock’s Redefining Realness. Visit ccbp.ucdavis.edu for more information.
