This film is a character-driven, feature-length, portrait film about the internationally renowned and celebrated author Kate Bornstein — a post-modern gender theorist, performance artist, trans-dyke, former high-ranking scientologist, heavily tattooed and pierced, 64 year old Jewish, queer icon. This is not a standard biopic or a linear story. The film chronicles the life of one of the most influential minds in gender theory. It is a study of a complex human being and an exploration of form and content to reflect Kate Bornstein and her universe. The film engages with Kate’s personal and public persona illuminating her multifaceted, sometimes contradictory, and always charming personality that has won the hearts of people worldwide but at times have alienated others’ sensibilities. This event is brought to you by the Office for Gender and Sexual Diversity (OGSD), the Newcomb Film Series, and the Gender and Sexuality Studies Program (GeSS).
Sponsored by: Newcomb College Institute as well as The Office of Gender and Sexual Diversity and the Gender and Sexuality Studies Dept.
