Synopsis: DISCLOSURE is an unprecedented, eye-opening look at transgender depictions in film and television, revealing how Hollywood simultaneously reflects and manufactures our deepest anxieties about gender. Leading trans thinkers and creatives, including Laverne Cox, Lilly Wachowski, Yance Ford, Mj Rodriguez, Jamie Clayton, and Chaz Bono, share their reactions and resistance to some of Hollywood’s most beloved moments. Grappling with films like A Florida Enchantment (1914), Dog Day Afternoon, The Crying Game, and Boys Don’t Cry, and with shows like The Jeffersons, The L-Word, and Pose, they trace a history that is at once dehumanizing, yet also evolving, complex, and sometimes humorous. What emerges is a fascinating story of dynamic interplay between trans representation on screen, society’s beliefs, and the reality of trans lives. Reframing familiar scenes and iconic characters in a new light, director Sam Feder invites viewers to confront unexamined assumptions, and shows how what once captured the American imagination now elicit new feelings.

"[An] essential, thoroughly engaging documentary..."

— Peter Debruge, Variety

"A thoughtfully crafted film that puts underheard voices first."

— Beandrea July, Hollywood Reporter

"'Disclosure' does an admirable job of covering many issues and contradictions a century of mostly insensitive screen depictions have raised."

— Bob Strauss, San Francisco Chronicle

"It's a nuanced look at media's ability to influence the conversation -- to move the needle in terms of public perception -- as well as its limits."

— Brian Lowry,

"In making the film, Feder and Cox are rewriting the very history they set out to tell, adding one more title to "positive representation" list. That alone is worth coming out for."

— Jude Dry, indieWire

"Disclosure makes clear that the conversation about transgender representation is only just beginning, but it offers an incredibly thoughtful opportunity to make more people aware."

— Nick Allen,

"Disclosure is vital whether it's the beginning of your education or a supplement along the way. It's a reminder of what representation can do and what representation can be. It is itself a work of trans cinema."

— Drew Gregory, Autostraddle

"With absolute precision Disclosure makes the case that the all-too-common portrayals of transgender characters on TV over the years have contributed to this epidemic through the reckless objectification of transgender people."

— Melanie, McFarland
