About the Film
Director: Aisling Chin-Yee & Chase Joynt
Duration: 84 min
This documentary is an in-depth look at the life of jazz musician Billy Tipton, who gained prominence in the 1940s and 50s. But it was not learned until after Tipton’s death in 1989 that he was transgender. Complicated, beautiful and historically unrivalled, this ground-breaking film shows what is possible when a community collaborates to honour the legacy of an unlikely hero.
