Southern Circuit Tour: Little Miss Wrestle
Global Education Center is excited to be a Screening Partner of the 2019-2020 Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers, a film series that brings the best of new independent film to communities across the South. The Circuit takes the audience away from their televisions, computers, tablets and phones to connect them with independent filmmakers – live! Southern Circuit transforms watching film from a solitary experience into a communal one.
Global Education Center has chosen a diverse array of films that will provide audiences with the opportunity to meet filmmakers and learn about the art of film making; and encourage community engagement using film as a conduit for discussions about social and community issues.
Little Miss Westie follows two transgender siblings as they navigate puberty, school, family and transitioning during the Trump era. Ren is competing in the Lil Miss Westie Pageant; her older brother Luca is coaching her on posing, make-up, and talent. He knows his stuff because he competed six years ago when he was living as a girl. Moving and unflinching, Little Miss Westie challenged basic ideas about gender, while entertaining audiences as this tween and teen bicker, struggle, and compete while coming of age.
