About the Film:
In this powerful documentary we meet Marianna, who has broken her ties with the ex-wife, children and sued her parents to fully live as a woman. By taking up the fight for her life and her identity, Marianna doomed herself to rejection. Her family has completely distanced themselves from her. While we follow Marianna’s life, we are confronted with her past through a theatre play she is director of, where the actors are following Marianna’s past in their lines. This emotional and engaging portrait of Marianna is a story about a fighter, a brave woman’s fight for the right to live her own life. It is a story about loneliness, hope, and the price one has to pay for it, and a magnificent piece of cinema.
The film won the Best Film and the Audience Award at Krakow Film Festival and the Zonta Club Locarno Award at
Locarno Film Festival.
