The Most Dangerous Year

FHFF Best of the Fest Series continues…

What happens when a community stands up for its civil rights? The Most Dangerous Year tells the story of a small group of Washington State families caught in the middle of the nation’s “bathroom wars.” 

Director Vlada Knowlton, a Seattle area filmmaker and parent of a transgender child, takes us to the front lines of this heart-wrenching political battle. Her film details how she and her family worked to combat a Washington state bill intended to force all people to use the public restroom that coincides with their birth sex. Then, joining other families of transgender children and a coalition of state lawmakers and civil rights activists, they fought numerous other discriminatory initiatives. Instead of shaming those who question transgender rights, this film invites a conversation.

As Washington state senator Joe Fain points out, we lose the battle for understanding when we stop speaking with one another.

Tuesday, April 16th, 7:00 PM at the Grange, 152 First Street, Friday Harbor.
