“Trans is not a curse or a disease, it’s a path.”
The film TRANS – I Got Life offers rarely seen insights into trans people’s often torn sense of life and the complex psychological, hormonal and often also surgical aspects of their transition.
Directors Imogen Kimmel and Doris Metz gained the trust of seven people who decided to go their own way. From their stories the film distills the broad spectrum of trans identity.
TRANS – I Got Life is a sensual journey into the in-between worlds beyond fixed gender norms, into intimate living spaces and into the operating theatre, a place that becomes the delivery room for a second birth. With a subtle and multi-layered approach, the film also transports the trans experience on a unique visual and sound level.
The documentary is a strong plea for us humans to no longer define ourselves by the 0.3 percent of DNA that distinguishes us, but rather by the 99.7 percent that unites us. At the same time, the film opens up the social debate about a world in which gender is no longer defined in terms of black and white but is instead understood in a more fluid way. TRANS – I Got Life concerns and touches everyone who lives in this world. Welcome to the 21st century!
