The Most Dangerous Year Trailer

"You want to talk about rights?!" Yes, yes we do. Passion River has debuted an official trailer for the indie doc The Most Dangerous Year, which played at the Seattle Film Festival and Atlanta Documentary Film Festival last year. Made by Seattle-based filmmaker Vlada Knowlton, The Most Dangerous Year is about the fight for rights for trans people, profiling an event in 2016 when a small group of families with transgender kids joined together the fight against a wave of discriminatory anti-transgender legislation that swept the nation and their home state - the "bathroom bills". With the help of a coalition of civil rights activists and ally lawmakers, these families embarked on an uncharted journey of fighting for their children's lives and futures in this present-day civil rights story. A vitally important topic that deserves our attention. See below.

Here's the first trailer (+ poster) for Vlada Knowlton's doc The Most Dangerous Year, from Vimeo:

The Most Dangerous Year is directed by Seattle based award-winning filmmaker Vlada Knowlton, director of the doc Having It All previously, and a few other short films. This first premiered at the Seattle Film Festival last year.

People like these just subvert the order of things. And that will be always hard to transcend in any way ...

this is not about civil rights - it's about mental illness.
