“Still Black” trailer


Directed by experimental filmmaker Kortney Ryan Ziegler, still black is an alternative feature-length documentary that explores the lives of six black transgender men living in the United States. Through the intimate stories of their lives as artists, students, husbands, fathers, lawyers, and teachers, the film offers viewers a complex and multi-faceted image of race, sexuality and trans identity.

The official release is set for Fall 2008. Visit the website to find out more on the film and how to support it.
