Little Miss Westie follows two transgender siblings as they navigate puberty, school, family and transitioning during the Trump era. Ren is competing in the Lil Miss Westie Pageant; her older brother Luca is coaching her on posing, make-up, and talent. He knows his stuff because he competed six years ago when he was living as a girl. Moving and unflinching, the film challenges basic ideas about gender, as this tween and teen bicker, struggle and compete while coming of age.



Has 25 years of filmmaking experience focusing on gender, sexuality, aging, and prison reform. Hunt has worked as a programmer for the Tribeca Film Festival and is on faculty at Marymount Manhattan College.


Has over a decade of experience in documentary, and has been on the creative team of a number of films that have premiered at Sundance and other festivals worldwide, as well as broadcast on PBS, HBO.
