Event description

Description

Lana and Lilly Wachowski have redefined the cinematically possible while joyfully defying audience expectations. Visionary works like Bound (1996), The Matrix trilogy (1999-2003), and Sense8 (2015-18) have made them the world's most influential transgender media producers, and their coming out revealed how transgender art has existed at the very center of American culture. In Lana and Lilly Wachowski: Sensing Transgender, Cáel M. Keegan explores the Wachowskis's films as both a historical record of transgender experience and a promise that we might learn "to sense beyond the limits of the given world."

Keegan discusses how the filmmakers take up the relationships between identity and coding, gender and the senses, and race and utopia to present a popular transgender aesthetic in which the plasticity of cinema creates new social worlds, new temporalities, and new bodily sensations.

Cáel M. Keegan is Assistant Professor of Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies and Liberal Studies at Grand Valley State University.
