Beyond Boundaries: Dare to be Divers Screening and Discussion Series presents:
"Real Boy: A Son's Transition, A Mom's Transformation," 2016, Directed & Produced by Shaleece Haas.
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 50 festivals worldwide, received more than 15 awards, and will be broadcast on PBS’ Independent Lens in June 2017.
There will be a panel discussion after the film.
Beyond Boundaries is curated by Professors Ruth Goldman, Meg Knowles, and Michael Niman and Jason Parker, and is sponsored by:The Office of Equity and Campus Diversity, The Department of Communication, the Women & Gender Studies program and the Burchfield Penney Art Center.
Beyond Boundaries screenings are free and open to the public.
