'Fursonas' Trailer & Poster: Exclusive Look At The Documentary That Shows The Inside World Of Furries


Though the media tends to cover furries, people who participate in the subculture interested in fictional anthropomorphic animal characters, with a detached sense of amusement, the actual community is as diverse and complex as any other. A new documentary “Fursonas” examines the subculture by exploring the various participants and factions within the community, as well as the public’s perception of them and various attempts to control their image. Part of the film follows Boomer, an androgynous furry who sought to legally change his name to Boomer The Dog and disgruntled much of the community for giving them a bad image. The film tells a universal story of identity and community by turning its eye at specific fandom, approaching it with respect and gentle humor. Watch the brand new trailer for the film above.
