OffCenter is an experimental documentary emphasizing the attitudes and experiences of unconventional African American, Latinx, LGBTQ people in Texarkana, a twin city in East Texas and Arkansas. It explores the racial, sexual, and gender identity of five main interviewees rebelling against Southern conservatism. OffCenter portrays the existence of marginalized people, their encounters with racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, and internalized oppression.
Post-film discussion with the director Aylin Sözen, and cinematographer Cesar Jaralillo to follow. 1h 18m
