She's a Boy I Knew

Using archival family footage, interviews, phone messages, and animation, Haworth's documentary begins in 2000 with Steven Haworth's decision to come out to his family about his life-long female gender identity. The resulting autoethnography is not only an exploration into the filmmaker's process of transition from biological male to female, from Steven to Gwen, but also an emotionally charged account of the individual experiences, struggles, and stakes that her two sisters, mother, father, best friend and wife brought to Gwen's transition. Produced and directed & edited by Gwen Haworth. c2008. 70 min.
