The sell: This documentary is an in-depth look at transgender representation in film and TV, from the earliest moving pictures to Netflix. All of the people featured are trans people working in the film industry in some capacity, e.g. writers, actors, producers, etc. Not only does this movie give an important history lesson, but it also demonstrates how critical representation is to the spread of understanding and pursuit of justice.
