     Nothing stays the same...

31 min  |   Canada  |  2022
Writer/Director - Eva Colmers
Producers - Eva Colmers, Quinn Lumsden,                                 and Bonnie Thompson

A thought-provoking journey of change and identity.


Quinn knew for a while that something just did not fit … and struggled.


Beautifully shot against the backdrop of nature and enriched by drawings and videos of young Quinn, the documentary offers a unique window into the ups and downs of a non-gender conforming young person. Over a four-year period, Quinn’s transition takes them to identify as non-binary, fall in love, marry and have a child.

Deeply personal, yet surprisingly universal, the documentary is invigorated by the powerful music of celebrated non-binary musician Rae Spoon.

"Nothing stays the same," says Quinn, as they strive to find a place in a society that is fixed on labels.

produced with the support of TELUS with Executive Producers Christina Willings, Leah Camenzind and Kelly Fox
