Join Indievents, Gigastrand International, and Club David, Thursday, April 21, for the South Dakota Premiere of TRANSFIXED.
TRANSFIXED is a feature documentary directed by Alon Kol. The film could not be more timely and important. The couple at the heart of the film, Martine & John, represent the average and (not so average) Trans community at large having average income, struggling with everyday human struggles, along with providing another voice for the Autism, Asperger and Tourette’s communities.
TRANSFIXED tells the story of highly unconventional romance: Martine Stonehouse and John Gelmone are middle-aged underdogs, living with Asperger Syndrome – an autism spectrum disorder that makes communication with others extremely difficult. Despite their social limitations, both dream of getting married, but straight identifying John refuses to tie the knot until transsexual Martine gets a real vagina. The only problem: no doctor in Canada will perform operation because Martine’s obesity makes her too great of a surgical risk. Will Martine and John find the happiness together that they deserve? Transfixed is a deeply human story about love, freedom, and self-actualization.
