Crossing Over: Stories of Immigration and Identity
This documentary began as a film on transgender women seeking political asylum in the U.S. but developed into a story that exposes transphobia and celebrates the strength of human survival. Three transgender Mexican immigrants navigate different stages of asylum in Los Angeles—all striving to establish stability and support systems in a foreign city. (Directed by Isabel Castro, 2014, 45 min.)
Stay for a panel conversation following the film with Kay Mailander, Psychotherapist and Program Coordinator, Refugee Services of Texas; Ana Andrea Molina, Director at Organizacion Latina de Trans en Texas; Sissi Yado, Community Organizer with the Human Rights Campaign; and Sebastián Colón-Otero, LCSW, psychotherapist and activist with over ten years of experience working with trans and gender non-conforming/non-binary people.
