Transgender Documentary Reveals What Other Films Refuse
Trans/Formed, the gritty, new documentary fom Cleo Valente, shows the unabashed detailed lifestyle of one of the largest transgender communities, located in Los Angeles, California.
Trans/Formed follows the lives of four transgender women of different ethnicities and backgrounds, living in Los Angeles. The film unfolds through an eclectic family album as each woman explains their unique story and their pursuit to becoming a woman.
The city of Los Angeles, while embracing the transgender community more than most, still rejects and relegates the community in many aspects. For them, it is hard to find work that is not prostitution, hard to find acceptance, and almost impossible to create a life and family
What stands out about Trans/Formed is it’s objective, compassionate nature, the stories are very real and in no way dramatized. The film is a forum for which these women tell their honest experiences of sex abuse, prostitution, love loss, and rejection from their families. The documentary shows people a truth in the hope that it further a tolerance and understanding for the Transgender culture.
The film is making its worldwide premiere in Los Angeles on Novemeber 13th. With question and answer afterwards.
