Description

From the folks who bring you the SF International LGBT Film Festival, Frameline Encore is a free, fresh, queer community screening series! Unlearn your preconceptions of gender and enjoy this utopian re-visioning of the Kronstadt Uprising of 1921. Bay Area filmmaker Cary Cronenwett’s MAGGOTS AND MEN features a cast of over 100 transgender actors, drawing a parallel between the history of revolution and the free expression of gender. This experimental film positions the struggle for gender equality within a larger struggle for justice, uniting trans and queer communities as well as audience members drawn to the film’s political content.

Dir: Cary Cronenwelt. 2009. Digital. 53 mins.
