Shaleece Haas; 2016; USA; 72 min. 

From queer director Shaleece Haas comes an affecting documentary about transgender teen and aspiring musician Bennett Wallace. With the support of his best friend Dylan (also transitioning) and fellow transgender performer Joe Stevens, Bennett navigates the ups and downs of his journey to find his voice, including sobriety and patience as his mother weathers his transition, while reaching for the promise of a new life. With a soundtrack that features Bennett and Joe’s original songs, REAL BOY offers deeply emotional glimpses into coming of age, revealing not only heartache and uncertainty but also the ultimate joy that comes with irrevocable change and the realization of one’s truest self.

Plays with: THE SWIMMING POOL (La piscina)

Rocío Llambí & Mariana Winarz; 2015; Uruguay; 11 min.; in Spanish with English subtitles
