It’s been quite the year for cinema group Elles Tournent. In January, they showed a film by transphobe Nina Paley, which ignited protests by trans people, feminists and allies. Elles Tournent refused to cancel the film, and one of their volunteers walked away, refusing to aid the festival again. The web designer, a trans woman herself, protested against showing the film, and was fired without any prior communication two months ago.
Now a third person quits Elles Tournent in frustration, to seek better employment elsewhere. As this was the only person remaining in the team who actually tried to push for more trans inclusive changes, the future of the cinema group looks grim.
The ET team has received the question about whether or not they will still show movies by transphobes in the future, and has refused multiple times to answer.
More news as we get it.
