The Dreamlife of Georgie Stone: ‘I hope there’s more empathy for trans people’

In this interview with transgender Australian actor Georgie Stone and director Maya Newell, we discuss the new doco about Georgie's life.

My interview with actor Georgie Stone and director Maya Newell comes hot on the heels of the local premiere of the new documentary The Dreamlife of Georgie Stone at the Sydney Film Festival and shortly after its world premiere at Tribeca Film Festival on 9 June.

Spanning 19 years, The Dreamlife of Georgie Stone tells the story of Georgie, an Australian transgender teen as she helps change laws, affirm her gender, finds her voice and emerges into adulthood.
Told through intimately accessed footage as well as a trove of beautiful home-shot video, it is a portrait of a remarkable life told as a study in memory, glimpsing significant moments of joy, triumph and adversity.
