Disclosure Special Screening

The Department of Cinema & Television is proud to present a discussion with Producer Amy Scholder about the making of Disclosure, a Netflix documentary featuring Laverne Cox which explores how Hollywood’s stories have influenced how Americans feel about transgender people, and how trans people are taught to feel about themselves. The discussion will take place on Wednesday, October 14th at 6:30 pm and will be moderated by FMTV Professor Ben Kalina. Participants must register at the link below and can pre-submit questions in the Questions and Comments section of the registration form. This event is open to the entire Drexel community.
