film series: engaging race, difference, and otherness through film & dialogue

The ICP Task Force against Racism and Homophobia invites you to our Zoom Film Series: engaging race, difference, and otherness through film and dialogue.

Taking an in-depth look at race, difference, and otherness as well as our own practice of othering presents a challenge for contemporary psychoanalysis. These five films confront us with a view of the lives outside of white, heteronormative perspectives to offer us a focused discussion about what these films capture in us. We’ll watch all five films over Zoom, allowing us to come together and share our thoughts and reactions during the film. The moderated discussion that follows will focus our attention on specific themes from each film, creating space to share our individual experiences with each other.

Film 2: Transhood

Sunday, January 8, 2023, 6-9:30pm PST

Filmed over five years in Kansas City, this documentary follows four kids – beginning at ages 4, 7, 12, and 15 – as they redefine “coming of age.” These kids and their families reveal intimate realities of how gender is reshaping the family next door in a never-before-told chronicling of growing up transgender in the heartland. The film is a nuanced examination of how families tussle, transform and sometimes find unexpected purpose in their identities as transgender families. Lighthearted and deeply moving, this story teaches us something new about being human.
