Professor Dan Hunt’s feature length documentary, Little Miss Westie, will have it’s World Premiere at DocNYC, the country’s largest documentary film festival.

Little Miss Westie is a moving documentary following two transgender siblings, Ren (transgirl) and Luca (transboy), as they navigate puberty, school, dating and family during the Trump era.  Ren is competing in the Lil Miss Westie pageant as perhaps the first out transgirl, if she has the nerve to come out while on stage.  Her older brother, Luca, coaches her on posing, make-up and talent because he competed six years ago when he was living as a girl.  A poignant and complex family portrait, Little Miss Westie challenges fundamental ideas about gender identity and parenting, while entertaining audiences as this tween and teen bicker, explore, and compete all while coming of age.

The film will premiere on November 10 at 2:45pm at the IFC Theatre in Greenwich Village. For more details, visit:
