GENDER FAILURE: Translations 2013 Opening Night Event!

We’re thrilled to reveal the exciting Opening Night event for the 8th annual Translations: The Seattle Transgender Film Festival, May 9-12.


Two of Canada’s most treasured and celebrated trans artists, Ivan Coyote and Rae Spoon, present their acclaimed multimedia show “Gender Failure,” featuring animation and video elements from Seattle artist Clyde Petersen. Through visuals, words, sounds, and original music, “Gender Failure” explores and exposes the prolific pair’s failed attempts at fitting into the gender binary—and ultimately how the gender binary doesn’t add up. Equal parts hilarious and heartbreaking, Coyote brings her razor-sharp timing and powerful narrative, while Spoon adds an ethereal voice and poetic turns of phrase to the dynamic duo’s now seven-year-old artistic partnership.

Thursday, May 9 - 7:15pm at Harvard Exit Theater, 807 E Roy St, Seattle 98102

Note: All other Translations programs will take place at Northwest Film Forum,
1515 12th Ave between Pike & Pine.

Stay for the OPENING NIGHT PARTY immediately following the performance!
