Birthday, The (II)

Negin Kianfar / Daisy Mohr

Netherlands, The, Iran 2006, 72 min.


Spoken language: Persian

World premiere

A young man is followed in his process of becoming a woman through a transsexual operation in Iran, up to and beyond his operation.

We meet his boyfriend, other transsexuals (among them, a woman becoming a man), the doctors, a priest and especially his family. All of them are religious, all of them are changing lives, but why would a 'free' man choose to become an unfree woman and lead a veiled life from now on? A portrait of schizofrenic lives in a schizofrenic environment. (Column Productions)
