Raising Zoey

2016, USA, 51 min
Directed By: Dante Alencastre
Preceded By: Dawn

Like many teenagers, Zoey is into makeup, loves drawing, and is planning to be an actress. But things aren't always so easy for a transgender 13-year-old girl. We follow her life just after winning a case against her school district for discrimination, as she begins hormone treatments and publicly advocates for change with her mother and sister always by her side. Buoyed by Zoey's positive spirit, this documentary by Dante Alencastre (TRANSVISIBLE) is uplifting and inspirational.

As dawn creeps across London, two lost outcasts meet in the darkness, more afraid of themselves than each other. As the sun begins to rise, and the veil of night is lifted, the pair are forced to look at themselves and face the harsh reality that life is sometimes what you make it, and that in the cold light of day, it takes more than the eyes to see inside a soul.
