Product Description:

A haunting documentary that tells the true life story of Teena Brandon, a Nebraska female who moved to Falls City, Nebraska, in 1993 and passed herself off as a male. When Brandon's newfound friends learned that he was, in fact, a female, their angry confusion triggered a series of brutal, horrific events that ended with the death of Teena and two other individuals. Interviews with actual players, including Brandon's girlfriend Lana Tisdel, as well as the murderers Tom and John, combined with audio tapes from Brandon's police interrogations, make this a poignant, unforgettable expose of homophobia and prejudice in small town America. Inspiration for the acclaimed 1999 feature film BOYS DON'T CRY.

Description by New Video Group:

To his girlfriends, he was the perfect boyfriend. To his killers, he was a gender-bending freak. To the law, he got what he deserved. Ultimately, Brandon Teena became an American tragedy.
When it arrived on the big screen in 1988, THE BRANDON TEENA STORY was powerful, intense and intimately personal--audiences were stunned and outraged by this chilling portrait of intolerance. The inspiration for the OscarĀ®- winning film Boys Don't Cry, the documentary went on to be an international theatrical hit and has since earned status as one of the seminal documentary films of the 1990s.
Featuring interviews with those who loved him, those who hated him and the prison inmates who sealed his fate, as well as a new interview with the filmmakers and never-before-seen footage, THE BRANDON TEENA STORY: COLLECTOR'S EDITION is a classic, must-see tale of prejudice and hatred in America's heartland.
