SAN JOSE, Calif — In Lady Valor: The Kristin Beck Story, former U.S. Navy SEAL Christopher Beck embarks on a new mission as a transgender woman, Kristin Beck. Following its CNN broadcast debut Sept. 4, the powerful and honest documentary will be available across all digital platforms including iTunes and WolfeOnDemand beginning Sept. 9 and arrives on DVD Oct. 28 from Wolfe Video and CNN Films.
Kristin served for more than 20 years as a Navy SEAL on SEAL Teams 1, 5 and 6. She retired in 2011, but continued high-level clearance work for the U.S. government and the Pentagon. Kristin hid her true identity throughout and after her years of service, but in 2013 came out publicly on LinkedIn and CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360.
Directed by Sandrine Orabona and Mark Herzog (The Sixties), Lady Valor: The Kristin Beck Story is produced by Herzog & Company/HCO’s Mark Herzog and Christopher G. Cowen in association with Easy Day Media Group/Executive Producers Travis Lively, Lisa Davidson and Chris Luke. The film features exclusive interviews with Kristin’s family and friends and their reactions to her coming out. While many around her have been supportive, some in the public have expressed more bigotry than she ever expected. After a lifetime of public service, Beck has learned that her fight for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness did not end on the battlefield.
