CHANGING GENDERS AND CHANGING MINDS

Screened as part of JFF 2017

From a young age, Natsuki knew she was a girl despite her biological sex. Against the backdrop of conservative Japanese society, this poignant docudrama tells her remarkable story of gender transition.

Reflecting on her high school years, Natsuki interviews the supportive friends and family who supported her choices – and also confronts the people those who oppressed her freedom.
