Real Boy

When: Thu., June 1, 6 p.m. 2017

Shaleece Haas, a queer documentary filmmaker and educator based in Oakland, California, has both produced and directed a brilliant story about a young, transgender youth. Ben Wallace’s journey comes to life through his understanding of his own gender in relation to his biological body, his family’s path to understanding and acceptance, and the growth of a special mentorship with someone who helps him realize that he can be the man he’s meant to be. Having made its trek across the world through screenings at festivals, Real Boy (2016) is scheduled to air on television later this year and arrives in San Antonio for an Indie Lens Pop-Up screening presented by KLRN.
