CHANGE IN THE FAMILY World Premiere Documentary Film by Sam HAMPTON w/THE WIVES ((China/31:1/2017)
Change in the Family (USA /63mins /2018/World Premiere) by Sam Hampton
Change in the Family explores the transgender experience though the perspective of one family. The only subjects of the film are the Thorpe family members. Zo is a 24 year old trans male who recently graduated from college and is temporarily living back home while looking to establish his work career. Zo is formally Zoe, the oldest of three girls by his birth mother, Michelle, a federal government employee in Washington, D.C. Zos dad, Earl, is a retired federal government employee and is very supportive of Zos transition. Earl is 80 years old, 25 years older than his wife, Michelle. In this, Zos family is both every family, and it is also a unique family: they are inter-generational, interracial, and transatlantic, with many family members based in the UK. They value each other, openness and education. As individual family members they are refreshingly authentic about their thoughts and feelings about Zo and the resulting transformation and changes to their family.
