From the Cinematheque

A brief documentary about siblings Penn and Alex Zacharias, who spend a day together and describe their shared journey of coming out as transgender.

We at the Cinematheque ran a program for LGBT youth across B.C’s lower mainland, intending to give them the resources to make films about their experiences. Penn chose to make a documentary about their experience coming out as gender non binary trans with their brother, Alex.

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
