Rigorous in its thoughtful self-examination, this devastatingly personal family portrait–a documentary feature nearly fourteen years in the making–details director Diana Newton’s own journey toward acceptance alongside her sister Christine, a trans woman navigating the emotional and physical perils of coming out. Wrenching and eloquent, The Ties That Bind offers a new gloss on living authentically in an environment historically hostile to difference.
