“I started thinking about being trans as a verb. I trans. I transgress. I traverse borders. I traverse into the unknown.”


Writer and filmmaker Sophie Kurpershoek has been disappointed, again and again, by the queer and trans stories that have been told by cinema. But instead of mounting a critique, they paid personal homage to five films that changed their life. In the intimate Sphinx Cinema with CreativeMornings/Ghent, Kurpershoek traces how these beloved films laid a blueprint for understanding their own identity. As a filmmaker, they learned to love their characters rather than subject them to needless suffering, to co-create stories with their muses rather than impose one on them. Watch Sophie Kurpershoek’s breathtaking survey of five films and witness love and artist come into being.
