Outhouse Documentary Film Club ‘What’s the Story?’
This just in from the amazing peeps at Outhouse:
We are hosting our monthly Documentary Film Club called ‘What’s The Story?’ on Thursday.
This month we have two gems, THE FAUX REAL a short doc about three brazen women who challenge definitions of drag, gender, and what it means to come of age as a woman without feeling like one.
IDENTITIES *winner best doc GAZE film fest 2009
One of the very few Irish films to engage with trans life and culture, Identities is a visually superb and immensely creative film. Exploring the culturally diverse background of the Irish trans community, revealing insightful and intimate stories relating to transvestism, transsexualism, drag, sexual identity and gender dysphoria in many innovative cinematic ways.
Using interviews and observational film techniques, the film breaks out into some wonderfully abstract performances by its characters in fantastical scenarios, giving rich visual expression to their stories. It is a film that heartily celebrates the overthrowing of traditional misconceptions and common stereotypes.
