The award-winning documentary Changing The Game will make its streaming premiere on Tuesday, June 1, 2021 on Hulu as part of Hulu’s Pride Month celebration.
Emmy® award-winning filmmaker Michael Barnett’s urgent and subsuming sports documentary illuminates what many have called the civil rights issue of our time: transgender inclusion in sports. Changing The Game takes us into the lives of three high school athletes, all at different stages of their athletic seasons, personal lives, and unique paths as transgender teens. Their stories span across the U.S. – from Sarah, a skier and teen policymaker in New Hampshire, to Andraya, a track star in Connecticut openly competing on the girls track team. The film centers on Mack Beggs, who made headlines when he became the Texas State Champion in girls wrestling – as a boy.
Changing The Game will debut as a director’s cut with new footage and a new original song called “Chasing Dreams” by Gozé featuring Old Man Saxon and singer-songwriter & trans activist Shea Diamond. The song was written and produced by Sebastian Fritze, Old Man Saxon and Tyler Strickland.
Changing The Game made its world premiere at Tribeca Film Festival in 2019 and has since won the Audience Award for Best Documentary at Outfest Film Festival and Frameline Film Festival, among others.
