In this extraordinary, internationally acclaimed documentary, a cast of trans actors take you through the story of a young trans woman forced to choose between honesty and accessibility to care. Agnes, the pioneering, pseudonymised trans woman who participated in Harold Garfinkel’s gender health research at UCLA in the 1960s, has long been the figurehead of transgender history. A remarkable story in the form of a 1950s talk show, that challenges scientific discourse based on archived interviews.
