Disclosure is an unprecedented, eye-opening look at depictions of transgender people in film and television, revealing how Hollywood simultaneously reflects and manufactures society’s deepest anxieties about gender.
Reframing familiar scenes and iconic characters in a new light, director Sam Feder invites viewers to confront unexamined assumptions, and shows how what once captured the American imagination now elicit new feelings. Disclosure provokes a startling revolution in how we see and understand trans people.
Leading trans thinkers and creatives, including Laverne Cox, Lilly Wachowski, Yance Ford, Mj Rodriguez, Jamie Clayton, and Chaz Bono, share their reactions and resistance to some of Hollywood’s most beloved moments.
DISCLOSURE is now available on Netflix.
