Directed by Sam Feder, Julie Hollar • Documentary • 2006 • 72 minutes
Sam Feder’s first feature Boy I Am, co-directed with Julie Hollar, explores issues rarely touched upon in films portraying trans male subjects. Tackling the extreme feminist view of transitioning as an anti-feminist act that taps into male privilege, this groundbreaking film opens up a dialogue between the lesbian, feminist, and transgender communities while also promoting a better understanding of transgender issues for general audiences. Boy I Am positioned Feder as a vital voice nearly two decades ago.
