High School violinist Rachel, the token straight friend in her group, starts the new school year determined to ask her crush, popular guy Pete, to the "Backwards Dance" where the girls ask the guys. Rachel's plans"”and her ideas about gender"”go awry when she meets handsome genderqueer teenager Sammy, who plays guitar and challenges the notion that "He" and "She" are the only options. Rachel and Sammy become friends, form a band, and combat the gender binary in this comedic short with a rocking soundtrack. A lighthearted but grounded look at the power of an accepting group of friends to shake up the status quo at one school, director Rebecca Louisell's Genderfreak has wowed audiences across the world, and opened up conversations between students, parents, and film lovers alike.
