FRFF 2021: Put the Brights On


On this episode of Art Beat we take you to the 2021 Frozen River Film Festival which was held virtually this year. Today, we hear from Raymond Rea, the film maker behind Put The Brights On which was part of this years local set at the festival. Put The Brights On shines a light on what it is like to be a trans person living in the rural Midwest, and it might not be what you think.
Using stark images of rural landscapes and transgender voices, Put The Brights On breaks down stereotypes and leaves you with a feeling of understanding and acceptance. I’m Bill Stoneberg, stick around as we Put The Brights On with film maker Raymond Rea, today on Art Beat.
