Oriana continues her conversation with the author and filmmaker Juliet Jacques whose work challenges mainstream misconceptions of trans identity. They discuss Jacques' film "You will be Free" which ruminates on the positives and negatives of facing death. Not only does the film say everything she thinks about life in ten minutes, but certain lines of it make her cry. They also discuss Jacques' relationship to masculinity, femininity, nonbinary gender identity and feminism.
