First Tuesday Social Justice Film Festival
Presents a Free Screening of Denial
Every month, at 7:00pm on the first Tuesday, the Unitarian Universalist Church of Oak Cliff screens a film focusing on an important social justice issue.
We hope you'll leave inspired and ready to hit the road in your own quest for a better world.
This film is not just about transgender issues, it's about climate change and the more human question of how we deny who we are and compromise to the point of it possibly killing us. It is a unique look at climate change set against the backdrop of Christine Hallquist's story as the first Transgender CEO to transition in office and the first Transgender Candidate for Governor.
The CEO of an energy company sets his family into a state of flux with a staggering secret while dealing with a much larger crisis at work. Denial tells exactly the kind of complex, deeply personal story about climate change we need at this moment.
This screening is cosponsored by the Dallas Peace & Justice Center and PlanetTransgender.com
“A moving portrayal of a family in flux set in the context of a larger world in crisis…The film wisely asks, how will we – as individuals, as community members, as a species – adapt to a changing world? It also begs a question not typically found in ‘traditional’ environmental documentaries: Can more inclusive, dynamic understandings of gender and sexuality lead us to more courageous thinking about how to sustain life on an ailing planet?”
