Documentary, Canada, 2006, 70 min
by: Tori Foster|
Follow filmmaker Tori Foster as she grabs her camera and travels 7000 kilometres across Canada to talk to 20 women about what it´s like to be queer where they live. The documentary follows the 22 year old´s journey through all ten provinces, beginning in Newfoundland and ending in British Columbia.
Each woman she meets has a unique perspective on all things queer - stereotypes, hairstyles, gender mishaps, and community life, to name a few. Now, Toronto ´s weekly magazine says, "Moments like tranny-boy Jaye´s cogent discussion of macho bullshit in the trans community or manic Winnipegger Madeline´s oddly affecting account of leaving Playboys and nudie-girl posters in her bedroom to piss off her bigoted parents resonate on a deep level." The 70 minute documentary is intimate and personal, telling stories about what make each of us who we are.
