In 2012, director Chase Joynt sat down with Benton (12), Madeleine (10) and Dexter (6) to talk about gender, puberty, school, and parents. In 2016, he revisited the kids to follow up with similar questions, but not before the kids flipped the camera on the adults to ask questions of their own.

Genderize is produced in association with CBC Docs for online release as part of their CBC Docs Shorts, and was featured on Latest TV in Brighton, UK.
