THE VISIBILITY QUESTION - A Framing Agnes Case Study - co-presented by GLAAD, premiering Saturday, January 22nd at 1:30pm PT.
In this age of steadily increasing onscreen trans stories and characters, the words “visibility" and "representation" have become buzzwords…but what do these really mean? Who determines what or who is seen? How might that attention limit wider opportunity for stories, or increase vulnerability for communities? Featuring the core creative team from director Chase Joynt's 2022 Sundance feature selection FRAMING AGNES, which uncovers stories of trans people from a bygone era and explores the complicated nature of sharing truths, this panel will discuss how trans and queer artists are collaborating to tell authentic stories with agency and awareness for how they land in culture.
