This film represents a documentary far less than it does a structured series of home videos. The film goes out of its way to illustrate personal examples of this particular transgender click, but answers absolutely nothing substantive about the issues that it tries to both portray and advocate. There is nothing to learn here, and unless you come into this film wanting nothing more than reinforcement of this community being of scientific and artistic significance it's not worth a viewing.

Another movie I added. Great doc exploring the lives and thoughts of a range of transgender and transsexual people. As a documentary, very personal and artistically edited (for the better).

The synopsis for this is misleading. The director may be reaching for some sort of futuristic theme, but yet another director has no idea that being trans is not a new thing and not as interesting as everyone thinks it is, but that doesn't matter because she picked great people to interview: trans people who know how to avoid that exploitative bullshit and really reveal just their general thoughts on life with the trans thing as a sidenote, albeit a large one, which is how it is in real life.
