Local premiere tonight for doc about the lives of transgender people

By Jessica Pasko

reclaiming pieces stillHere's something to look for at this evening's Troy Night Out. Ethan Bach, an MFA student in electronic arts at RPI, will be premiering his documentary short on the lives of transgender people at the 51 3rd Street Gallery.

Ethan says he wanted "Reclaiming the Pieces" to go beyond politics and anatomy to show transgender people who have found their sense of place in life. The 17-minute film interviews four people from across the country. Ethan plans to turn the film into a full-length documentary.

He told AOA that he "wanted to show that we're more than just bodies and chemicals, that we also have things to give back to the community."

"Reclaiming the Pieces" will have its Capital Region debut for one night only. Screenings are scheduled for 5:30, 7, 7:30 and 8:30. A reception will be held at 6 p.m. An accompanying art show will feature works by Ethan and artist Aryn Zev.
