A powerful and evocative experimental documentary about a young person's conflict between the desire to transition, and passion for swimming on a women's college team. Ambient sound (the tuning of a piano) builds with the emotional pitch of the storytelling, and serves as an aural template for an evocative editing style. Sequences of self-reflection are inter-cut with stunning underwater images of Calvin, a young FTM, swimming in a "swimming suit." The video is thoughtfully constructed, allowing the viewer to reflect upon perception, double entendres and visual codes. Like Frameline Voices? Donate here: bit.ly/FramelineDonate
