The desire to start a family against all odds puts one couple to the test as they face international scrutiny for their unconventional circumstances.

(I Know Your) Face, directed by C. Hudson Hwang; 2014; Canada; 3 min. Told from the perspective of the narrator, this black-and-white music video explores trans identity across all segments of society, with an overlay of diverse faces over that of the narrator’s, challenging viewers to reconsider their definition of humanity and gender.
