Directors: Pioneer Winter and Tabatha Mudra

The title of this work discloses its origin: ‘gimp’, a slur meant to mark a weak or handicapped person and ‘gait’, the manner or style of a person’s walk. The film’s subjects do not hide these from you – do you have a good view?

I Grow More Fearless Each Time I Make It Home Unscathed
Director: Jespa Jacob Smith

This animated short is an essay about being non-binary in rural America, where violence is a constant threat and transition can seem like a refuge. It also reflects the difficulty of existing in a binary world, where ‘gender satisfaction remains elusive’.
