Indie Lens Pop-Up
Real Boy Free Film Screening & Panel Discussion

Add to your calendar
Date: May 24, 6:00 pm
Continues Until:
Location: Mesa County Libraries, Central Library Community Room, 5th and Grand
Details: Rocky Mountain PBS Indie Lens Pop-Up, in conjunction with Mesa County Libraries, presents a free community screening of Real Boy, a moving and intimate story of a family in transition.? ?The screening is Wednesday, May 24th at 6:30pm in the Community Room at the Central library.

Real Boy follows the journey of trans teen Bennett as he navigates adolescence, sobriety, and the physical and emotional ramifications of his changing gender identity. Through the process, his mother Suzy makes her own transformation, traveling the difficult road toward accepting that the daughter she raised as Rachael is now her son Bennett. 

Through observational storytelling that is alternately heartbreaking and humorous, Real Boy offers a clear-eyed look at a family tested by a change they never imagined; the complexity of addiction; the healing power of music; and the unbreakable bond between mother and child.

Real Boy is a love story about a mother and son who rediscover connection with each other and find support from their communities, reminding us that families are not only given—they can also be chosen. 

The film will be followed by a panel discussion featuring a local mother and her 9-year-old transgender daughter, ?an adult transgender male who is newly transitioning, and a teenage transgender male who transitioned some time ago.
