Buck Angel, the world’s most famous trans pioneer, returns to Max Black this November for a very special evening of conversation and inspiration with a screening of the award-winning documentary Mr Angel.
The documentary Mr Angel, directed by Dan Hunt was shot over six years and chronicles Buck’s extraordinary life – he has survived addiction, homelessness, suicide and relentless opposition to his gender expression. Still, he lives his truth without compromise or apology.
This feature length film explores Buck’s moving story with a goal to understand the complexities of someone who overcame incredible obstacles, then shamelessly sought the spotlight and its backlash, to share his message of empowerment. An inspirational story of rare perseverance and an unlikely hero. The film has screened at Rio International, Frameline, Indianapolis International, London LGBT, Brooklyn International, and Tokyo LGBT Film festivals… among others. It just reecently won BEST DOCUMENTARY in Seattle. This will be one of the very first screenings of the film in Australia.
Buck has lead the way for all of us to find self-acceptance in powerful and personal ways. His message of self-acceptance goes beyond gender, sex and genitals: it is a universal concept of knowing, becoming, and loving yourself.
On the night:
- Champagne Reception
