The Trans Film Screening Series hosts a FREE screening of:
“REGRETTERS” + short films

Everyone welcome. Allies welcome.

► Regretters: With just a stage, a slide projector and their stories, Mikael and Orlando open up. Both men, well into their 60s, share a common bond — they were men who became women and decided to change “back”. What follows is a respectful conversation about the different lives they’ve led. They question the other’s experiences with gender, sexuality and identity, while reflecting on their own. It is a controversial study – in its subject matter, in its production, and in its refusal to speak in easy political terms. Still, Regretters is not a lament on them doubling back on their transsexuality. Instead, this Swedish documentary initiates a warm dialogue on fluidity and complicates social expectations.

**Also screening: short films themed around outsider joy, quirk and comedy.**
