Transgeneration is a miniseries about four transsexual college students who deal with issues of transition, family, discrimination, and socializing. The crucial element in a documentary is the editing, trimming a mountain of footage down to a manageable size, and this film hits a home run. The footage neither glosses over important issues nor lingers on trivialities, and it maintains the coherence and interest of the four individual story lines. Highly recommended.
TRANSGENERATION, dir. Jeremy Simmons, 2005 USA, 80 min. video, will be broadcast on the Sundance Channel in September 2005.
