Description: Zackary Drucker and Rhys Ernst are a Los Angeles-based couple whose individual and collaborative work addresses, respectively, trans-feminine and trans-masculine experience. Drucker and Ernst will present recent films and projects, including their new experimental film collaboration, SHE GONE ROGUE, which premiered at the Hammer Museum's first Los Angeles Biennial, Made in LA 2012. Ernst will discuss his film, "The Thing," which premiered during the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. Ernst positions his filmmaking in a "New Trans Cinema" that complicates gender representation in narrative cinema and places queer and transgendered characters within larger narratives. In addition to Sundance, he has screened work at Oberhausen, Chicago International Film Festival, Chicago MOCA, Brooklyn Academy of Music, REDCAT, LACE and Outfest. Drucker is a multimedia artist working in performance, film/video, photography and spoken language. She performed "The Inability to be Looked at/the Horror of Nothing to See" at a part of "You Belong To Me" - a performance festival held in downtown Riverside in 2009. She has exhibited her work nationally and internationally at locations including MOMA PS1, Deitch Projects, Leo Koenig Projekte and Invisible Exports in New York; Luis De Jesus in Los Angeles; Moscow's International Biennale For Young Art; and Les Recontres Internationales Paris/Berlin/ Madrid. Drucker has collaborated with some legendary queens - from Vaginal Davis to Flawless Sabrina - some of the films she'll screen will include performances by these legends!
