Mara Rago‘s “Carla” documentary premiered at the Reel Q Pittsburgh LGBTQ Film Festival to a sold-out crowd at the Warhol Museum Friday evening.

The documentary depicts the life of Carla Beck, a Pittsburgh trans woman. Beck transitioned late in life, but she always knew she identified as a woman. Early in the film, she says, “I tried to be a little boy, but it didn’t take.” It’s a candid shot into the subject’s mind. You can read a full review of the film by Michael Buzzelli here.
