Through textured vignettes, collaborators Silas Howard (Transparent, By Hook or By Crook) and Jen Richards (Her Story, Frameline40) illuminate themes of family, resilience, self-determination, and finding your calling, through the perspective of trans people of color. Defense attorney Mia Yamamoto, who was imprisoned in a Japanese American internment camp as a child, illuminates a fight for human dignity that includes-and goes beyond-her later-in-life gender transition. Reverend Louis Mitchell survived the decimation of his community during the start of AIDS, and now finds himself spiritual leader to white, straight, cisgender seniors who accept him in his entirety. Joanna Cifredo advocates for other trans women, refusing to rest until her story of survival is the norm and not the exception. Gizelle Messina teaches others how to find beauty in ...

Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story (2017)

Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story (2017)

Hedy Lamarr was a Hollywood movie star who was hailed as the most beautiful and glamorous in the world. However, that was only the surface that tragically obscured her astounding true talents. Foremost of them was her inventive genius that a world blinded by her beauty could not recognize as far back as her youth in Austria with her homemade gadgets. This film explores Lamarr's life which included escaping a loveless marriage on the eve of Nazi Germany's conquest of her nation to a new career in Hollywood. However, her intellectual contributions were denied their due even when she offered them in the service of her new home during World War II. Only after years of career and personal decline in her troubled life would Lamarr learn that her staggering aptitude created brilliant engineering concepts that revolutionized telecommunications, which forced the world to realize the hidden abilities of a woman it had so unfairly underestimated.
