Lyle Kash talks about his first film, Death & Bowling, a trans thriller comedy-drama, with many cinematic inspirations and a solid independent feel. Lyle tells Angelo Acerbi the struggle but the satisfaction too of putting up such an out-of-the-box project and having it travelling around the world, much more than he thought. he tells about the pride as a trans director to be the unabridged voice of his community, in a film where the trans real life is displayed and employed, from the gaffer to the the first actress.

Death & Bowling: In a fictional meta-critique on trans representation, a transgender actor struggles with what it means to be seen after the beloved captain of his lesbian bowling league dies and a mysterious stranger shows up at the funeral.
