(This comment refers to the feature version of Transgeneration in limited release at festivals, in my case, Los Angeles Outfest 2005.)
I loved Transgeneration--it's a look at four transgendered college students, two male-to- female and two female-to-male, in various stages of their transitions. It's hilarious, heartbreaking, and will be manna for other gender-curious kids who can oftentimes think that they're all alone in their situations. Which is not to say that wider audiences won't love it, too; the universal human need to find oneself, and to come to terms with that self is reflected in the four students. Director Jeremy Simmons is incisive without ever being intrusive, and has created a very wondrous thing. I'm really looking forward to the expanded mini-series airing Fall 2005 on Sundance Channel.
