TRANSMILITARY focuses on the lives of four transgender service members caught in a state of uncertainty between geography, identity, and policy as they fight to defend their country and their own rights. For some of these individuals, the military is paradoxically both a dangerous place to be trans, and one of the few places where they feel like they are allowed to live truthfully in their gender identity and expression. Following the Emmy-nominated short TRANSGENDER, AT WAR AND IN LOVE, Fiona Dawson and Gabe Silverman’s thought provoking film chronicles these four brave individuals who are taking on the Pentagon in the fight for equal rights.
Photographer, soul mate, leather man, coke addict, enfant terrible, genius — Robert Mapplethorpe lived many fascinating lives. This searing, brutally honest biopic explores the remarkable journey of the artist who died of AIDS complications at age 42.
