Framing Agnes

Sunday, February 19, 2023 at 1:00 pmYukon Theatre

FRAMING AGNES turns the talk show format inside out in response to media's ongoing fascination with trans people. The film breathes life into six previously unknown stories from the archives of the UCLA Gender Clinic in the 1950s.

An incredibly important, if thematically dense film. It offers a rich and nuanced story about how queernesses involving trans persons in the 1960s, were contained and framed by the narrow, and subjective opinion of male members of medical academia and television.

Recommended for ages 13+ for mature themes and content.

"A fascinating, multidimensional, mosaic-like glimpse at transgender life from the 1950s to today as interpreted by — and through — a group of transmasculine and transfeminine performers and creatives and one uniquely impressive academic." - Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
