The Mosaic Documentary Release Party

Mosaic: a documentary and dialogue

Mosaic is an amateur documentary film created by and for Trans folks. Mosaic seeks to tell the story of one Trans youths travel from Toronto to San Francisco, while also exploring the many interconnected stories of Trans folks across parts of Canada and the USA. Aiming to be both a documentary and dialogue, Mosaic engages its audience in a critical discussion around identity, struggle, and community. Bringing together nearly 50 interviews from Toronto, New York City, Philadelphia, Orlando, Tampa, Houston, Redlands, Oakland, and San Francisco, Mosaic delicately balances a variety of perspectives, opinions, and stories. Thanks to support from Ryerson University, the journey which began in 2012 is finally going to premier this summer!

Join us in celebrating the release of Mosaic with musical performances, live theatre, and spoken word, by Trans artists, along with clips from the film.
