The Perfect Man

Saturday, June 21, 3:45 pm, Theatre, screened before Mom, I Didn't Kill Your Daughter

Liam Eriksson is a transman, taking T (testosterone, not crystal meth!) and getting ready for top surgery. He has the support of his friends and family, but he gets caught up in the maze of the healthcare system. When he has a breakdown, the doctors take away the T and the scheduled surgery, forcing him to retrace a part of his life's path that he thought he had made it beyond. The Perfect Man weaves home movies of Liam when he was a little girl with present-day interviews as we follow his difficult journey. Highly recommended

The Perfect Man, dir. Maria Åkesson, 2007 Sweden 24 min., in Swedish with English subtitles; watch the trailer
