See You Then

Kris, a transgender computer programmer, and Naomi, an Asian-American performance artist, used to date in college. They haven’t seen each other for 15 years, since Kris left town without a word. Over the course of a one night encounter, they engage in a series of increasingly intimate and revealing conversations, before a revelation sends everything spiraling out of control. SEE YOU THEN focuses on the universal truth that no matter how much you change, a part of you will always stay the same. [English | 74 minutes]

Trans Shorts: Frankie

Frankie, a non-binary trans person, crashes their ex-partner’s men-only 12 step meeting, determined to be heard… no matter the cost. [English | 10 minutes]

Instructions for Survival

Alexandre is a transgender person who has lived with his girlfriend Marie for more than seven years. Because of the mark “female” in his passport and his trans identity, Alexandre cannot find a job and has to lead a secret life. The violence and discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity brings the couple to the decision to leave their homeland. To afford this exodus, Marie signs a contract to be a surrogate mother. Instructions for Survival narrates the love between two people whose lives are a constant battle but who stick together against all odds. [73 minutes | Germany | Georgian, Russian, German]

The Labyrinth of the Moons

The trans experience in Argentina. The documentary deals with the universe of transvestite people having as main thread in the story, Maternity in all its meaning and Trans Children. Karla Ojeda (48) and Maira Ramírez (50) two transvestites who go through adoption and Gabriela Mansilla (42) mother of a trans girl, offer us their testimonies of life; The stories are intertwined with songs and poems by Susy Schok trans artist, poet and writer. Identity, a true maze that depends on personal construction. [Argentina | Spanish | 69 minutes]

One of the Guys

What defines a man? It was as Virginie that corporal Vincent Lamarre enrolled in the Canadian Army. As he did his coming out to his superiors, he surprisingly founds his hierarchy back him unconditionally as his family did. The movie relates Vincent’s sexual transition with the support of his chain of command. What defines a man? His testosterone? His penis? His warrior spirit? The way people look at him? [French/English | 90 minutes]

Siljoy Maurer

Holistic Perspectives P.O. Box 333, Enka, NC 2872  Phone: (828) 333-0103  | siljoy@me.com or  www.HolisticPerspectives.com For many years now I have been mentoring men and women from all walks of life. It continues to be my greatest joy to accompany someone from “just being ok” into thriving! As a Mentor & Healer I partner with my clients in creating authenticity, wellness and deep contentment, in whatever area of their lives they are seeking change. The combination of giving very practical, livable tools for direct “next steps” while “holding the big picture” and then manifesting that big picture often feels like this: a new client brings me their life or life situation in a jigsaw puzzle box, they lost the lid and forgot what the picture on it looked like. I am good at knowing that picture and then guiding my clients/mentees to put all the puzzle pieces together.
