There are a lot of things that play a part in forging an identity: intergenerational connections, shared histories, mutual understanding and the communal endurance of hardship.

In this mix of personal documentary and portraiture, some filmmakers look internally, at selfhoods based on cultures, political influences, and familial ties. Others allow space for trans and gender-nonconforming people, communities experiencing homelessness, and subway performers to investigate what it means to be a person in a body, with material realities and rich histories.

Multifaceted and fluctuating, these works demonstrate there is no clear formula for how our experiences shape us and how we shape ourselves in a dually hostile and potentially joyful world.

Programmed by Miranda Mungai. 81'
