TRANSGENDER LIFE IN SLOVENIATransspolna življenja v Sloveniji
directed by Michelle Emson
Michelle Emson; 2016; Slovenia; 39 min; in Slovenian with English subtitles
You may be shocked and touched when you hear these interviews with a few of the estimated 6,000 transgender, gender-nonbinary, gender-neutral, and gender-non-normative people in Slovenia. Some of those featured are activists, yet all reveal what it is like to live open, authentic lives in the face of conservative standards of gender, fear of abandonment, and comprehensive cultural invisibility. This engaging film heightens the visibility of transgender people in Slovenia, who ignore the ever-present pressure to remain closeted and inspire others to live their lives freely.
