Although the explosion of trans-themed cinema has sparked a debate about representation, much of these works fail to address the dimension of race and its role in transition experiences. Facing this blind-spot head-on, Still Black acts like a spotlight and a beacon to focus the discussion through six mini-films of articulate and insightful interviews with Black American transmen. Shot in black-and-white and with an original trip-hop score, the segments are also audio-visually engaging.
