CALL ME MALCOLM
by Joseph Parlagreco

Born Miriam, we meet Malcolm as a young man in the final year of seminary on the cusp of a new vocation and a new beginning. Malcolm allows us to follow him on his journey across the US as he meets with individuals who openly share what it means to be a transgendered person in this country, at this time. Produced by Filmworks, Inc. (a secular NYC based production company) and The United Church of Christ (a mainline Protestant denomination) Call Me Malcolm is the first feature film intended for theatrical release to be produced by the church. Surprisingly non-didactic, this documentary touches on issues of education, spirituality, gender equality, LGBT equality, hate crimes, and the history of the transgender movement.
