No Ordinary Man

December 2, 2021
Montgomery Theatre/Online Film Event
PLA Presents

For decades, the life of American jazz musician Billy Tipton was framed as the story of an ambitious woman passing as a man in pursuit of a music career. In No Ordinary Man, Tipton’s story is re-imagined and performed by trans artists who celebrate Tipton as a musician living his life according to his own terms, painting a portrait of a trans culture icon and unlikely hero. Complicated, beautiful and historically unrivaled, this groundbreaking film reckons with a complicated and contested legacy: how do you tell the story of someone who was hiding in plain sight yet desperate to be seen?

Directed by Aisling Chin-Yee & Chase Joynt, 2020, Canada, 84 min., documentary, English.
