What was the inspiration for your film?
The song Homosafe first of all and secondly a story one of the band members shared while we were in the script writing process. A night after one of the “alt-right” nazi rallies in Berkeley, a group of nazis tried to get in the door of 924 Gilman st. The club’s security and patrons and the bands chased the nazis to their car.
What is one thing you’ve learned from making your film?
When working with a large cast, its important to have a few background action directors and possibly a bull horn.
What is the future of trans/gendernonconforming filmmaking?
My hope for the future is that there will be better representation of trans and gender non conforming people in the media. I feel the way we will get there is to have more trans and gender non conforming people making film and television and more being cast in those roles.
What is a highlight or a favorite memory from working on your film
Working with my friends to make some art together and also smashing a car.
Name 3 of your all-time favorite films.
Thats a tough one, like really tough. The Dreamers by Bernardo Bertolucci, Tangerine by Sean Baker and I don’t know… the 5th Element, I could watch that movie over and over.
