From the age of three, Austin knew that his female anatomy did not fit him. In middle school, he changed his name and began to dress as a boy. His family thought it was a phase, but he persisted. Now he will get surgery so he can breathe freely and finally, swim in public. Austin Unbound is the first documentary about a man who is deaf and trans.
“Our film stays honest by not trying to represent every Deaf or trans person in the United States. Austin Unbound is about one sweet, brash, funny, complicated guy who’s brave enough to share his story with us.”– Mara Green, Assistant Director
