Tracing Utopia is an odyssey into the dreams of a group of queer teens in New York City as they envision a better world. This short documentary imagines a form of queer community transcending time, through glimpses of a utopia made manifest in the streets, in community spaces, and online. A collaborative manifesto weaves these pasts and futures together, calling for the change that queer youth strive for today.
