My name is An and I identify as a trans man. I’m Dutch and a filmmaker and I have a bit of an obsession with films. Especially Queer films.
With the TRANS CINEMA 101 series I want to find and discuss films that are authentic, valuable and meaningful to the trans community. However, how can we say whether a film belongs in the archives of trans cinema or on the discarded pile of shitty representation? Depends who you ask! It is therefore important to say that the films I discuss here and praise might be films that you didn’t like, or the other way around.
In this first episode, I discuss Paris is Burning.
