More Than T

In 2001, Silas Howard directed one of the first feature films with trans characters played by trans actors. This groundbreaking cinematic moment of trans talent onscreen and behind the camera was the multi-award-winning By Hook or By Crook. Since then, Howard has held unique space as one of the only trans directors (Transparent, This Is Us) working in North America.

  • Silas Howard
  • 65 minutes
  • His latest documentary shines a spotlight on seven transgender and gender- nonconforming individuals, all of whom are artists, activists, and groundbreakers in their own right. Deeply human and honest, More Than T veers from themes of isolation and violence commonly seen in trans documentaries and follows stories of triumph, healing, and belonging.
