The American Documentary Film Festival continues its “Best Of” Screening Series on Thursday, October 18th with a very special program built around the award-winning documentary I STAND CORRECTED. I STAND CORRECTED charts Jennifer Leitham’s rise as a virtuoso of the upright bass and reveals how she risked everything with her decision to undergo sexual reassignment surgery. The documentary explores the fears Leitham wrestled with as she rose through the ranks of the jazz world, and celebrates the joy she discovered after embracing her female identity.
