Post-film Q&A with producer Sam McConnell.

While the trans movement is currently a topic of great discussion thanks to high-profile political action and celebrity attention, many people may not be familiar with the stories of trans activists who have been changing attitudes and fighting for equality for the past half century.The Trans List features engaging interviews with leaders in trans* rights, not only those who are making news today but also those who have been fighting for equality from the days of the Stonewall riots and before. Filmmaker Timothy Greenfield-Sanders provides intimate portraits of 11 trans luminaries, including Laverne Cox, Kylar Broadus, Caroline Cossey, Bamby Salcedo, and Caitlyn Jenner. If you’re not familiar with these names, you probably should be, and you’ll be surprised and moved by their emotional and inspiring stories.

Alternately humorous and poignant, The Out List features a diverse cross-section of accomplished leaders from entertainment, business, sports and public service sharing intimate stories on childhood, understanding gender and sexuality, building careers while out and reflecting on the challenges still facing the LGBT community. Against the backdrop of historic Supreme Court hearings on same-sex marriage and financial equality, subjects recall joyous moments of acceptance and romance, along with painful instances of intolerance and discrimination, offering unique modern perspectives on being out in America.

Venue: The City Library
Address:
210 E. 400 S. , Salt Lake City, UT, 84111

Directed by André Téchiné

A national treasure in France, writer and director André Téchiné continues his storied career with his new film, Being 17. Returning to the roots of his post-New Wave style of filmmaking, Téchiné creates a compact drama that plays out against an imposing mountain backdrop.

Damien is the pampered teenage son of a soldier and a doctor. He lives with his mother in an army barracks in the south of France while his father is on a military mission in the Central African Republic. But Damien must adopt a new, defiant stance in high school to stave off the bullies who taunt him over his effeminate ways: a friend of his father’s is teaching him to wrestle.

When he meets Tom, the adopted son of local farmers, the antagonism between the two boys is immediate and visceral. When Tom’s mother has to go to the hospital, Damien’s mother quite naturally offers to take care of Tom, and the tension between the two boys becomes almost overwhelming.

Kacey Mottet Klein and Corentin Fila are utterly engrossing as Damien and Tom, and every glance and gesture sensitively captures their exhilarating chemistry. Téchiné’s film breathes with a poetic temperance that marks it as a beautifully structured, finely acted ballad of teenage angst and passion.
