Family In Transition
In Hebrew with English Subtitles
Director: Ofir Tranin, 60 min.

This is an intriguing Israeli documentary about an Orthodox Patriarch of a large family who transitions to become her true self, a woman. How does her extended family and a rural Israeli town react?

The story follows a family in Nahariya, a small traditional town in Israel, whose lives change completely when their father finally decides to tell his family that he’s a transgender woman. Their mother chooses to stay with her spouse through the whole process, and just as it seems that life is back to normal, the story takes a sharp turn and shakes everything up again.

This is a story about a family that does not follow dictates; a family that breaks social conventions; a family that changes what we thought we knew about gender, parity, parenthood and being transgender. But most of all, it is a story about a family that redefines the limits of recognition, acceptance and love of those closest to us.

Co-presented by OutWatch LGBTQI Film Festival and Rialto Cinemas, Sebastopol
