Director Shaleece Haas & subject Bennett Wallace will be in attendance.
Winning the Audience Award for Best Documentary at 2016 Frameline Film Festival and Best Documentary at Giffoni Film Festival, “Real Boy” is a charming and complicated coming-of-age story of Bennett Wallace, a transgender teenager on a journey to find his voice-as a musician, a friend, a son, and a man. Though he has to navigate the ups and downs of young adulthood, he manages to gain the love and support of his mother and the mentorship of celebrated transgender musician Joe Stevens. A heartwarming story to share with family or friends which features extraordinary musical works by both musicians, “Real Boy” is crowdpleaser that succeeds in finding laughter, joy and its voice throughout.
