"understated but compassionate" - Variety
"Revealing, visually layered, and completely engaging, it's also a heart-wrenching emotional ride. . .After decades of shock filmmaking, only honesty like this can still startle us." - Regina Marler, The Advocate
Red Without Blue is the groundbreaking documentary about the indestructible ties of family. This visually arresting film chronicles the close, yet sometimes strained relationship between identical twins Mark and Alex as Alex undergoes a transformation into a woman named Clair. Captured over a period of three years, RWB documents the twins and their parents, examining the Farleys’ struggle to redefine their family.
Through its portrayal of these articulate and independent twins, each haunted by the painful experiences of their adolescence, the film questions normative standards of gender and identity – as Mark and Clair reassert their indescribable bond as identical twins.
