Storyline

"I know nothing in the world that has as much power as a word." - Emily Dickinson In a generation built on texts, tweets, memes, and irony, what has become of the weight of our words? In what way does communication serve as a form of self-expression, and self-expression a form of communication? Mattioli Production's upcoming documentary "Words" will explore how people navigate gender and identity in the open and evolving landscape of New York City. Using some if NYC's most fluid scenes as a backdrop, Mattioli Productions will investigate how masculinity, femininity, and everything in between are contextualized in a range of environments, from the theatre world to early childhood education. Featuring exclusive interviews from a variety of artists, activists, icons, and innovators to be announced, "Words" promises to be a poignant and powerful tribute to the language we use to shape our identities. Written by Gabby Acquaviva

The Talking Gender Non-Binary Blues
18 October 2018 | by dflatSee all my reviews

Saw a sneak preview of this documentary through a mutual friend of the director's. It's a no-frills (but effective...and funny, and enlightening!) look at New York City's LGBTQ+ community, as a wide cross-section of same try to articulate who they are and what their place is in both the Big Apple and the world at large.
