Institute History

  • 1993 Sundance Film Festival


Max used to be Anita Valerio, a lesbian Native American living in San Francisco. No longer comfortable in a woman’s body, Max recounts his journey between the sexes in a refreshingly candid and inspiring way. This, the newest of Treut’s films, will be released this year in a collection of her work, “Female Misbehavior.”

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
