Event Description
Docs In Progress is pleased to present our 2017 Filmmaker-in-Residence André Pérez who
will screen and discuss a selection of documentary shorts from the web series America in Transition which takes a real look at social change from the perspective of transgender people in marginalized communities.

André is an oral historian, educator, filmmaker, and community organizer based in Chicago. His passion is empowering marginalized communities through media production, leadership development, and creating platforms to share underrepresented stories. He is currently at work on America In Transition, a documentary series that takes a look at social change from the perspective of transgender people in marginalized communities.

He is in Washington DC serving as Docs In Progress' 2017 Filmmaker-in-Residence, a program made possible through support from the National Endowment for the Arts. While at Docs In Progress, André is editing a new episode from the series; will give a workshop on participatory storytelling; and will present this screening to the public. The residency is covering travel and honoraria. Any donations made to tonight's event are completely voluntary, but will help cost-share these expenses, as well as the rental of space for tonight's screening.

This film will be captioned and ASL interpretation will be provided.

Make sure to come to Busboys and Poets' Brookland location which is on Monroe Street at Michigan Avenue, NE. It is walking distance from the Brookland/CUA Metro Station on the Red Line, and there is both street parking and a parking garage accessible from 7th Street NE between Monroe Street and Lancaster/Lawrence Street. This event will take place in the Bailey Room and food/drink will be available for purchase from the restaurant. 

Docs In Progress is a nonprofit organization which gives individuals the tools to tell stories through documentary film to educate, inspire, and transform the way people view their world.
