Transatlantic is excited to announce that award-winning writer and director Chase Joynt’s personal and probing VANTAGE POINTS: On Media as a Trans Memoir, has been acquired by Brian Lam at Arsenal Pulp Press, for publication Fall 2024!

Deal by Samantha Haywood at Transatlantic Agency (world).

VANTAGE POINTS is a kaleidoscopic work of narrative nonfiction that illuminates the stakes of intergenerational trauma, childhood sexual abuse and the production of masculinity by synchronizing Joynt’s experience as a trans man with the media and meta-cultural theories of Marshall McLuhan. 

Chase Joynt is a director and writer whose films have won jury and audience awards internationally. His debut documentary feature, Framing Agnes, was named a Best Movie of the Year by The New Yorker after premiering at the Sundance Film Festival where it won the NEXT Innovator Award and the NEXT Audience Award.  With Aisling Chin-Yee, Chase co-directed No Ordinary Man, a feature-length documentary about jazz musician Billy Tipton, which was presented at Cannes Docs 2020 as part of the Canadian Showcase of Docs-in-Progress. Since premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2020, No Ordinary Man has been hailed by The New Yorker as “a genre unto itself” and Indiewire as “the future of trans cinema.” The film has won 9 awards on the international festival circuit, including being named to TIFF Canada’s Top Ten. Joynt is the author of two books: the Lambda Literary Award Finalist YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE (co-authored with Mike Hoolboom) and BOYS DON’T CRY with Morgan M Page. 

Congratulations Chase!
