SUNDAY 10/24, 3:40 PM (SESSION 8)

Directors: Christi Cooper, Liz Smith,
Producers: Christi Cooper, Olivia Ahnemann

Description:

Vic tries to explain to his climate-denying father the impacts of the climate crisis on their own disenfranchised communities. Adding to this deeply emotional challenge is Vic’s concurrent gender transition, shifting their relationship from father-daughter to father-son, for which there is no instructional manual. Vic ultimately, like any son or daughter, desires unconditional acceptance, love, and support from his parent… but how do we connect with loved ones when their belief systems undermine our very identity and right to a healthy future?
