NFSA Livestream – Man Into Woman + Guest Q&A

Concert or Performance

12 Nov 2020 Once Only Event

Man into Woman is the first documentary about Australian trans lives. Given only a limited release in 1983, it has never been shown since – until now.

Filmed in Sydney in 1981, the film unusually seeks to provide a voice for trans woman and men of the time, in contrast with the sensational viewpoints that were a feature of most reportage of the period. The NFSA is proud to have this film in our collection and we have digitised the 16mm print to be able to share it with a wider audience.

Following the free, online livestream of the film, there will be a panel discussion with director John Ruane and documentary subject Chanelle Saint-Laurent.
