The Ties That Bind Documentary Film - Seymour

Wednesday, January 30, 2019

The Ties That Bind is a personal documentary memoir by filmmaker Diana Newton that captures her family’s journey of conflict, loss, and adaptation in response to her younger sibling’s transgender change. It is a searing look at a Southern family wrestling with each other and their beliefs, exposing the shadow landscape of the culture wars at play as they seek a new normal. While the film foreshadows today’s bathroom politics, it is far less a “transgender” story than a complex family story that weaves together a portrait of their imperfections and the love that remains intact even so. This film has been at many film festivals and featured on this year’s PBS Online Film Festival. After the film, there will be Q&A time with Diana. Min: 10/Max: 80
