VHS Vault Series: WHAT SEX AM I?
Cinephiles, culture vultures, and curiosity seekers take heart, the Vidiots Foundation's new "VHS Vault" screening series monthly presents films from our rare collection for your viewing pleasure. Each screening is followed by an extended conversation featuring a panel of filmmakers, programmers, critics and experts. Based on more than thirty-years of meticulous collection, Vidiots' library holds thousands of rare titles guaranteed to make you think, feel and see the cinematic landscape in new and different ways. A combination of socially-conscious, entertaining and educational films speak to the eclectic nature of Los Angeles and cater to the city's diverse interests, cultures, and generations. This monthly screening series was made possible by a grant from the City of Santa Monica Cultural Affairs Division.

WHAT SEX AM I? chronciles a group of transgender individuals in the mid-1980s as they attempt to live as fully and openly as possible. Having originally aired on HBO in 1985, this moving and enlightening documentary, directed by Academy Award-Winner Lee Grant, remains as relevant as ever. The short follow-up film 30 YEARS LATER: LEE GRANT, directed by Taylor A. Purdee, features an interview with Grant herself, and will play after the feature.
