C'est avec fierté que nous réalisons ce premier épisode en anglais, en partenariat avec le collectif Représentrans ! Vuk Lungulov-Klotz est l'auteur et réalisateur du film 24 heures à New York
Hello, my name is Jena, thank you for listening to Our Trans Voices! Bear with me while I greet our usual French speaking listeners:
Bonjour, je m’appelle Jena, merci d’écouter Nos Voix Trans ! Exceptionnellement cet épisode est entièrement en Anglais, parce que notre invité n’est pas francophone. Nous allons procéder au doublage, et publierons une version française dès que nous pourrons.
This episode is very special to me. Well, they always are. This one is, because it’s the first time a movie production company contacted me to be part of a new release press tour, MUTT, called Vingt-quatre heures à New York in French. And for once, it’s a REAL trans movie. It’s written and directed by a trans guy, starring a trans guy playing a trans guy, with trans friends played by trans people. Full credits. Why is that so hard? And it just happens that the movie is great. I was nervous before meeting the creator of Mutt, so I enlisted the help of the wonderful Charlie Fabre from the Representrans collective, and the 1PCT podcast, who is a trans man specialised in transmasculine representation in cinema. With his help, there were now two of us being nervous before meeting Vuk Lungulov-Klotz. And he was amazing. He was kind, and open to all our questions, and radiant like happy artists can sometimes be. We have decided to share this complete exchange, so you can judge for yourselves, and enjoy it as much as we did.
