A short film produced by MTSU students and an arts professor recently won the Grand Jury Prize for best documentary short at the Perth International Queer Film Festival, MTSU Sidelines reports. The documentary titled 'Graham and Zeke' follows a Tennessee transgender couple, focusing on their struggles and challenges in day-to-day life. Kailee Morris, a director for the project, said she hopes the documentary will help the transgender community, making them “relatable and easier for people to understand how to help them or how to just properly treat them or listen to their story.”
