DIRECTOR: Chris McKim

Neither exploitative nor sensationalizing, Sex Change Hospital focuses on the dedication and talent of Dr. Marci Bowers, a transgender surgeon currently working in Trinidad, Colorado (the sex change capital of the world) performing sex reassignment surgeries. These episodes from the series follow two people on their journeys to undergo the procedures and explore how Dr. Bowers’ personal and professional history helps to make the experience more fulfilling and safe for her patients.
Produced by the powerfully talented folks at World of Wonder (Party Monster, The Eyes of Tammy Faye, Trans Generation), the series pulls you into the compelling stories of people who are taking what some see as the final step towards defining one’s gender. It also provides a common thread through each of the episodes in the form of Dr. Marci Bowers, who calls upon her own experiences as a transgender woman to guide her patients as they go through this ultimate life-changing procedure.
The groundbreaking short film One in 2000 looks at the experiences of the one in two thousand people who are born intersex — those with genitalia that don’t perfectly fit the definition of male or female. Highlighting the cruelty and wrongheadedness of genital surgeries on infants (which serves no actual medical purpose), One in 2000 is an informative, tender, compelling and effective call for change. — CINDY M.
