Q&A to follow with Charles Atlas and Antony

TURNING captures Antony and the Johnsons in concert collaborating with the filmmaker Charles Atlas (THE LEGEND OF LEIGH BOWERY), celebrating 13 women taking the stage who, like Antony himself, are not easily categorized personas. Whether they are androgynous, transgender, covered in makeup or bare-skinned, what is important is their hard-won humanity, amplified by the transcendent power of Antony's music. The film takes the viewer into the world of Antony and the Johnsons as they tour their astonishing live concert/performance work, "Turning."  At its center are a series of intimate interviews with the women who performed this extraordinary show with Antony. Their stories combine with Antony's mesmerizingly emotional songs to create a powerful journey of struggle and hope.
