It is told through the lens of an extraordinary Native Hawaiian who is both a māhū, a transgender woman, and a kumu, or teacher, cultural practitioner, and community leader.Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IDaAoYZUlUAIn the third, "Queen of the Desert", we meet "real life Priscilla" Starlady, a transfeminine youth worker in Australia. The documentary follows her on a journey to Areyonga, an indigenous community in Central Australia, where she goes to work with a group of young people.Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?timecontinue=1&v=G7MDOSereYOur final documentary, "Transsexworks" takes us a lot closer to home, to the trans* sex workers of Froebenstr. in Berlin, many of whom are migrants, and subject to regular racist & transphobic abuse. The film follows local trans* organisers who work alongside the womxn to organise basic support and care structures.

If you have any questions about access for this event please contact us. The following information has been developed from within disabled and neurodiverse community.As the film series will touch on difficult subjects such as poverty, transphobia and racism, we will give a list of potential trigger warnings before screening and our staff will be around to chat for a while after screening. Other Nature is partially wheelchair accessible.We have a removable ramp for the 3 steps leading up to the shop, so please call us in advance and we’ll set up the ramp. There are precise stair and space dimensions here https://other-nature.de/gb/info/contact#wheelchairTo make the space more accessible for people with chemical sensitivities, we would like to create a lower fragrance environment for this event. We ask all our attendees to help by not wearing or using fragrances of any kind. That said, being a public space, we are not able to guarantee a scent-free space.
