Laverne Cox, Sam Feder: Trans Lives Depend On Owni

Season 2, Episode 11 of 52

Trans liberation is the latest frontline in the struggle for civil rights. In their new documentary, Disclosure, director Sam Feder and producer Amy Scholder use over a century's worth of film to show that trans identities have long been at the center of our collective cultural history. They join four-time Emmy nominated actress and Emmy winning producer Laverne Cox in a groundbreaking conversation with Laura on how trans people are reclaiming their stories and transforming the power structures in Hollywood. They describe the experience of assembling the first majority trans film crew and interviewing an incredible range of trans actors and media critics to understand how media shapes attitudes, behaviors, and laws about gender and trans lives. With film history as a background, Laura and guests explore what's next for trans liberation-and the bearing it has on the continuing struggle for human rights for all. Guests: Laverne Cox, Award Winning Actress, Producer, and Activist, Executive Producer, Disclosure; Sam Feder, Filmmaker and Director, Disclosure; Amy Scholder, Publisher and Producer, Disclosure.
