A new twist on transgender life, Uncle Gloria is a darkly funny film full of drama and family fireworks about the macho owner of an auto wrecking company in Florida who goes into hiding from the law as a woman setting off a bizarre journey of self discovery. Undergoing a risky sex change operation, Gloria becomes a dominatrix, a transgender activist and finds a gender-bending love all while trying to reconcile with her dysfunctional family. This stranger than fiction tale was among a handful of films selected for a Film Independent Documentary Fellowship.
