Christine in the Cutting Room (Work-In-Progress)

DIRECTOR: Susan Stryker

In a new film project that straddles the boundary between documentary and art, transgender scholar and filmmaker Susan Stryker uses the career of 1950s transsexual icon Christine Jorgensen to explore identity, embodiment, technology and representation. This program will feature an overview of Jorgensen's career, highlights from archival media discovered during research and a clip from the work-in-progress.

Susan Stryker, Associate Professor of Gender and Women's Studies and Director of the Institute for LGBT Studies, University of Arizona, won an Emmy for her 2005 documentary Screaming Queens: The Riot at Compton's Cafeteria.
