Bristol Fashion Film Screening

June 13 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Please welcome filmmaker Pierre Guillet and the cast for a screening of the award-winning film, Bristol Fashion, in which a young transgender woman escapes her troubled home to find solace in a dilapidated boatyard. 

ABOUT BRISTOL FASHION

Christina is a young trans woman who’s running — from her past and home. When she buys a broken-down boat for that purpose, she gets more than she bargained for in the boat’s owner, Esteban — warm, funny, and dying to take her to dinner. He gives her a place to stay on an abandoned barge and helps her fix up the boat. Slowly but surely, they find themselves quietly navigating the sometimes messy waters of a straight man falling for a trans woman.

We can’t find home standing still; for some of us, home is in finding who we are, in raising the anchors, and embracing freedom on the water.

ABOUT THE FILMMAKER

Pierre Guillet is a tugboat captain and a filmmaker from the Bronx. He was raised amongst the eccentric denizens of an inner-city marina, which gave him a deep understanding of people on the fringes of society. While not on the water, he has worked as a writer, producer, and director on many shorts, commercials, and music videos. Bristol Fashion is his debut feature narrative film."
