Coming to theatres tomorrow, Friday, November 23:
FAMILY IN TRANSITION
A husband and father’s transition from male to female changes the dynamics of the family in unanticipated way.
The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
Amit, a father of four living in a small town in Israel, tells his wife, Galit, that he is a woman and wants to transition. Galit pledges her support, ready to overcome surgery, social stigma and bureaucracy to maintain her marriage. But, as Amit transforms into the woman she was meant to be, tensions arise while everyone in the family readjusts to understand themselves and each other anew. In the process, Galit must redefine her own identity and what it means to be a parent, a spouse, and a lover.
