2018 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Iris seeks to share the joy and frustrations of being a young trans woman through her short narrative dark comedy, TRASHY BOOTY. The film tells the story of two dumpster diving trans women who encounter a hitch hiking robot- one based on a real life social experiment. Iris plans to submit the film to LGBT and trans film festivals like Qflix, Frameline, and the San Francisco Transgender Film Festival, as well as to online vehicles. In those spaces, Iris hopes to engage in conversations with diverse audiences about the film’s themes (feminism, gender self-determination, friendship) and bring increased visibility to trans women.
