"A Run for More"
Directed by Ray Whitehouse, and executive produced by the Austin-based PJ Raval, the documentary A Run for More chronicles the obstacles and prejudices faced by Frankie Gonzales-Wolfe as a transgender woman during her 2019 bid for a San Antonio City Council seat. Shot over the course of four years, and set against the backdrop of the Republican Party of Texas' anti-trans crusade, A Run for More examines Gonzales-Wolfe’s traumatic past that inspired and informed her current political activism and ambitions; her occasionally troubled election campaign; her relationship to the local and regional trans communities; and her loving marriage to her supportive husband, Jeff Wolfe. A Run for More is available to stream through Sept. 5 during the All Genders, Lifestyles, and Identities Film Festival’s Prism 35 virtual event. Ray Whitehouse makes his documentary feature directorial debut with A Run for More. Austin-based executive producer PJ Raval previously directed Call Her Ganda, Before You Know It, and Trinidad. Documentary subject Frankie Gonzales-Wolfe currently serves as the chief of staff for Bexar County Commissioner Rebeca Clay-Flores, making her the only transgender person to hold this politically appointed position in the State of Texas.
