The Politics of Casting in the Making of Transgender Romantic Comedy Two 4 One

Maureen Bradley, MFA, Department of Writing

Friday, January 20: 12:30 to 1:45pm

Hollywood has a history of, until recently, casting white actors as people of colour and portraying transgender people as either psychopaths or jokes. Such casting choices have had devastating effects on public perceptions of marginalized people. What happens when a gender-queer filmmaker calls all the shots in the creation of local feature film, Two 4 One? Award-winning filmmaker, Maureen Bradley, has created over forty short films that have screened at festivals around the globe. Her first feature, Two 4 One, won the Best Canadian Film Award at the Victoria Film Festival, the Audience Award at the Available Light Film Festival, the Audience Award at the Seattle Transgender Film Festival and many more awards. The film’s lead actor, Gavin Crawford, won the 2015 ACTRA-TO Award for Outstanding Performance—Male for his portrayal of transgender hero, Adam. Gabrielle Rose won a Leo for her role in Two 4 One. In 1992, Maureen reached millions of viewers on the CBC youth TV series, Road Movies.
