Nothing stays the same...

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 and Leah Camenzind
