Coraci Ruiz
Documentary : 73' / Autobiographical, Family, Gender, Identity, Youth, Non-binary, Bisexual

An autobiographical documentary directed by a mother who follows the gender transition of her teenage son: between 2016 and 2019 she interviews him addressing the conflicts, certainties and uncertainties that permeate him in a deep search for his identity. At the same time, the mother, revealed through a first-person narration and her voice that talks to her son behind the camera, also goes through a transformation process that forces her to break old paradigms, face fears and dismantle prejudices.
