Now You See Me
Director: Kaye Tuckerman, 2022, Australia, 8 minutes, Cast: Pooya Mohseni
A powerful story about the trauma and ultimate triumph of being a transgender female. “I didn’t use to be real. I was here, in the physical realm but no one could see me. My own Father had to squint his eyes when he looked at me and he would ask ‘Who are you over there? Don’t you know how to be a boy?” Allie, the transgender, identifying as female, goes home to try and reach out to her family. Instead, she comes away with a stronger new relationship, with a dress.
