Impossibility Now

“Impossibility Now” is a trans* politics manifesto by Dean Spade. This video was created for the February 2013 conference “Gender Talents: A Special Address,” which asked invited speakers to perform a manifesto. The video takes themes from Dean’s book, Normal Life, and illustrates them with images. Dean teamed up with filmmaker Basil Shadid to shoot and edit the film, and further edited with Hope Dector at the Barnard Center for Research on Women.

This video was included in issue 11.1-11.2 of S&F Online: Gender, Justice, and Neoliberal Transformations.

Captions are available on YouTube.
