Kimberly Peirce was writing her college film thesis about a female soldier dressed in drag during the American Civil War when she read an article about Brandon Teena. Teena was a transgender male who was murdered after locals in his small Nebraska town found out about his gender history.

Peirce shifted her thesis and created a short film about Brandon Teena, interviewing his family members and residents of the town, and attending the murder trial of the suspects. Peirce’s short film was so well-received that it was made into a full-length feature film. Boys Don’t Cry wowed critics and won several awards, including an Academy Award for Hilary Swank, who played Teena.[/vc_column_text][rev_slider_vc alias=”women-in-film”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″ css=”.vc_custom_1474419229237{margin-top: 0px !important;padding-top: 0px !important;}”][vc_custom_heading text=”More from Pryme…” font_container=”tag:h3|text_align:left” google_fonts=”font_family:Cinzel%3Aregular%2C700%2C900|font_style:700%20bold%20regular%3A700%3Anormal” el_class=”sidebar-heading”][vc_widget_sidebar sidebar_id=”avada-custom-sidebar-cultureheadline” el_class=”headlines-list-column”][vc_widget_sidebar sidebar_id=”avada-custom-sidebar-culturelist” el_class=”headlines-list-column”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_custom_heading text=”More from Pryme…” font_container=”tag:h3|text_align:left” google_fonts=”font_family:Cinzel%3Aregular%2C700%2C900|font_style:700%20bold%20regular%3A700%3Anormal” el_class=”sidebar-heading”]
