Little Miss Westie/Framing Agnes
Directed by Dan Hunt and Joy E. Reed, Little Miss Westie chronicles a year in the life of two transgender siblings as they navigate puberty, a local beauty pageant, and transitioning in the Trump era. The film takes its title from the Little Miss Westie pageant, where Ren hopes to compete as the first transgender girl.
The screening is sponsored by the Rotary Club of Teaneck.
There will be a talkback featuring director Joy E. Reed and Chris and Shelley McCarthy, parents of the two transgender siblings.
We'll also be screening the documentary short Framing Agnes. In the late 1950s, a woman named Agnes approached the UCLA Medical Center seeking sex reassignment surgery. Her story was long considered to be exceptional and singular until never-before-seen case files of other patients were found in 2017.
Directed by Chase Joynt, the screening of Framing Agnes is sponsored by Sen. Loretta Weinberg.
