Trans men reflect on taking testosterone. The body expands to new realms of possibility.
This short film began as a series of remotely conducted interviews (due to the COVID-19 Pandemic) with transgender men and transmasculine individuals who had taken testosterone. Conversations centered around the transformation of the body and soul during hormone replacement therapy. Through a blend of live-action footage and animation, taking T becomes a spiritual reimagining of the body and a process of growth rooted in nature rather than modern medical practices.
"In delving into the intricacies of trans experiences, “Imagine a Body” does not reduce the evolution of identity to a simple journey from problem to solution. The objective is not merely the treatment of a condition but the capacity to experience a more rich, full spectrum of life."
- Crispin Long, The New Yorker
