Documentary Short, 14 minutes
What do kids know about gender? Probably more than you think. In 2012, director Chase Joynt sat down with Benton (12), Madeleine (10) and Dexter (6) to talk about gender, puberty, school, and parents. In 2016, he revisited the kids to follow up with similar questions, but not before the kids flipped the camera on the adults to ask questions of their own. The result is a poignant, hilarious and urgent call for a life where family matters, gender is fluid, and everyone gets to live a life where you choose your own adventure.
GENDERIZE is produced in association with CBC Docs for online release as part of their CBC Docs Shorts, and was featured on Latest TV in Brighton, UK.
