An Afternoon with Rhys Ernst
directed by Rhys Ernst
Don’t miss this special in-person screening and discussion with pioneering trans filmmaker Rhys Ernst. In addition to an impressive collection of work, including THE THING (SLGFF 2015), Ernst co-produces Amazon’s award-winning series Transparent. Taking the show as a jumping-off point, he pioneered two offshoot docuseries, This Is Me and We’ve Been Around, in order to broaden transgender visibility and deepen trans history on a mainstream platform. We’ll screen episodes from these celebrated shorts series, featuring animation by Seattle’s beloved Clyde Petersen (GENDER FAILURE, Translations 2013), and chat with Ernst about what he has up his sleeve next.
