TRANSITS is a one-off documentary project concieved as an auto-representation path through which a group of transgender are introducing their universe known mostly by stereotypes and more often discrimination.
TRANSITS is an expressive terrain where biographical events are part of a poetic functional to stimulate the public, able to generate a sense of empaty and proximity.
TRANSITS is a series of frescos with a strong human character, where the direct involvment of the subjects allow for a genuine inside perspective. The selfportraits are composed utilising the narration in first person done by the protagonists and a curated dramaturgy of editing without the use other external commenting voices. Elemens such as the
quotidian of relationships, the banality of the encounters, the existential difficulties and the extremity of prejudices the protagonist are facing are amongst the topics touched by the film.
With TRANSITS we foreseen a creative narrative process with five transsexuals involved in the project “Oltre lo Specchio” of the Association Gruppo Abele. This project intend to make us understand the reality of a micro cosmos known mainly through a mediatic dimension that is too often discriminatory. The aim is humanise a community at risk by contributing to the destigmatisatisation of its members, presenting them as individuals rather than as a group. The point of view becomes a space to re-affirm ones own dignity without fearing the judgement of the community, abolishing or exaggerating stereotypes according to the conscious decisions the protagonists will choose to make. The purpose of this initiative is to define a 'poetic of the experiences' with the purpose of contributing to overcome positions of victimisation and prejudice.
