Framing Agnes

Rated: Not Rated
75 minutes; in English; Directed by: Chase Joynt
The pseudonymous Agnes was a pioneering transgender woman who participated in an infamous gender health  study conducted at UCLA in the 1960s. Her clever use of the study to gain access to gender-affirming healthcare led to her status as a fascinating and celebrated figure in trans history. In this innovative cinematic exercise that blends fiction and nonfiction, Framing Agnes uses Agnes's story, along with others unearthed in long-shelved case files, to widen the frame through which trans history is viewed.
