Trans Filmmaker Jules Rosskam’s trans narrative is a provocative and personal experimental documentary investigating dominant constructions of trans masculine identity, gender, and the nature of community.

By sensitively framing the film through his own personal journey within the trans masculine community, Rosskam creates an electric and original investigation into gender politics and social self identity.

Blending fiction, nonfiction, and experimental film genres,against a trans narrative employs a genre busting combination of intimate diary footage, stylized dramatic scenes, spoken word performance, faux audition tapes, and roundtable interview footage to explore and initiate a dialogue between feminists, queers, and transfolk about the way we construct personal and historical narratives. Careful attention is paid to the ways generation, race, class, and culture impact our understandings of gender.
