  • This event has passed.

In this program of short films, trans artists address the erasure of rich legacies of trans activism and art by creating artworks that revisit and re-imagine stories. 

Mining existing archives and creating new ones, Unearthing Trans Legacies proposes alternative modes of retrieving and disseminating a trans past through an erotic gaze and experiments in form and narrative storytelling.

Defiantly looking towards a future of pleasure, play, and beauty; these works place trans sexual expression and resistance in conversation with a non-linear idea of history, that is both real and fabricated, to address how limited evidence of a past shapes our understandings of the present.

No one turned away for lack of funds at the door.
