Changing the Game (2019) Tribeca 2019
Smartly looking at the questions and problems from all angles CHANGING THE GAME is a largely fair and balanced look trans athletes today. While the film could possibly be faulted for not giving more time to those against the trans athletes, it's understandable since pretty much everything we hear from the naysayers is vitriolic and nonconstructive. On the other hand director Michael Barnett is smart enough to make some effort to address their points so while we may not get the naysayer words we are shown what they are arguing, and then refute it.
I really like this film a great deal. It is a smart and moving film that beautifully illustrates the complexities attached to trans athletes.
