In 2006, Simon Strikeback and Madsen Minax (of the Chicago bluegrass band Actor Slash Model) packed their instruments and cameras and struck out on the road. For 3 years, they travelled the U.S shooting 15 bands (including The Degenerettes, CAmm Dir Kristen Anchor’s band) and dozens of individuals performing, living, and discussing songwriting, venues, media representation, passing privilege, and the politics of gender identity. In a media climate where most images of transpeople are at best as victims and at worst as “freaks,” Riot Acts is radical departure -- no victims; just real people living interesting lives and making music. (The film also features appearances by CA staffers Megan Hamilton, Brittney Huff, and Dawn Swartz!) Reception with filmmakers, live performance by The Degenerettes, Jessica Xavier, and soup dinner precedes the screening and Q & A with the filmmakers follows.
