Event Details

Words - a Documentary

Words is an exploration of identity set against the ever-changing backdrop of NYC.

Recent Winner of "Best Director of a Feature Documentary" at the Atlantic City Cinefest!!


Words is an exploration of how people navigate identity in the open and evolving landscape of New York City. Using some of NYC's most fluid scenes as a backdrop, Words investigates the dissonance between self-constructed identity and identities that are projected onto us by society, and how they are contextualized in a range of environments, from the art world to the NYPD. Featuring exclusive interviews from a variety of artists, activists, icons, and innovators, Words promises to be a poignant and powerful tribute to the language we use to shape the many facets of our identities: as men, women, artists, New Yorkers, human.


Paying it forward:

10% of the profits from the film will be donated to the Ali Forney Center, a New York City based non-profit that is “the largest agency dedicated to LGBTQ homeless youth in the country.” For more information about this organization, please visit:


Note from the Director

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment”

                                -Ralph Waldo Emerson


We move… so fast. NYC doesn’t stop it simply evolves. Our City is progressive by nature as it is, and has always been, home to the dreamers, the poets, the lovers, and the artists. I am Transgender Director AJ Mattioli, and I want to help you navigate that every changing landscape. With this documentary I entered worlds I have never seen and was truly humbled by other individuals stories. We each have a path and Words certainly play a large part in that travel. We here at Mattioli Productions truly hope you enjoy this documentary as much as we enjoyed the journey of making it.
