Flash Flood, an animated documentary, brings three transgender voices to light while they share their intimate relationships with their identities.
Parallel to this, in a dreamlike universe, three people find themselves marooned separately during a cataclysmic flood event. As the three subjects struggle to find each other, memories and thoughts well up from deep within their bodies. Stories of growth, transition, and self-discovery punctuate these moments. The film is animated by volunteer transgender artists and animators from across the globe.

Animation credit : Harlo Martens, Reagan Gustin, Anna Blomgren, B. Coates, Allie Jett, Alli MacKay, Mikael Bjorklund
