Directed by filmmaker Vlada Knowlton, “The Most Dangerous Year” profiles transgender children who, in 2016, found themselves facing new proposed legislation that would limit their freedoms.
Republican lawmakers in Washington state fought to pass a bill — SB 6443 — that would force transgender individuals to use restrooms and locker rooms that do not align with their gender identity in schools and public places.
The film is among the first to provide an in-depth look at this generation of young transgender people, motivated into activism in order to protect their right to be themselves.
“The Most Dangerous Year,” premiered at the Seattle International Film Festival in 2018 ahead of a limited run in New York City beginning on April 12 and Los Angeles beginning on April 26.
