Buck Angel, transgender porn star, filmmaker, speaker and transgender advocate, has released a new documentary titled “Mr. Angel.”

The 68-minute film will premiere at this year’s SXSW film festival. The film is groundbreaking because it candidly touches on subjects that society often tends to misunderstand or even sneer at. Mirroring the film, the premiere itself is innovative because many other film festivals rejected it.

In an email to HuffPost Gay Voices, Angel noted, “It’s a pretty big deal as some of the other 'big festivals' turned us away as being too 'subversive.'"

The premiere takes place March 9 at 7:30PM. Watch a trailer for the film above.
