First Look: #Trailer for in-production #documentary “ALMOST” – On realities, identities & Indigeneity

A short documentary in production on the intersection of realities, identities and Indigeneity, and the concept of being enough, no matter what or who you are. Following the lives of four people on Asperger’s Syndrome, sexuality, transgenderism and the effects of stigma and prejudice.

Description:

“Almost normal.
Almost acceptable.
Almost indigenous.

Half, a quarter, a fraction, a piece.
Gender, sexuality, ethnicity, cognitive or physical abilities.
Toxic beliefs, ableist and racist structures in society continue to harm.
Some are embracing their differences in order to heal, and they’re connecting.”
