A Deal With the Universe
A Deal with the Universe follows Jason Barker’s incredible story of how he came to give birth to his child.Charting over ten years of life with his partner Tracey and drawing on the filmed diaries made over the last ten years, the film documents his transgender journey as well as his journey to parenthood.
This is a surprising, joyous, deeply moving and sometimes very funny documentary about very ordinary queer lives in extraordinary circumstances. Groundbreaking in terms of its intimate insights into gender identity and new parenthood, it will resonate profoundly with anyone who’s ever tried to have a baby but is ultimately universal in appeal thanks to the playful charm and raw sincerity of its central couple.
We are delighted that Jason Barker will join us after the screening to talk about the film.
Dir. Jason Barker, 2018, UK, 90mins, 16+
