THRESHOLD

STREAMING FROM 15TH - 21ST OCTOBER (UK & IRELAND)

An autobiographical documentary made by a mother who follows the gender transition of her adolescent son: between 2016 and 2019 she interviews him addressing the conflicts, certainties and uncertainties that pervade him in a deep search for his identity. At the same time, the mother, revealed through a first-person narration and by her voice behind the camera that talks to her son, also goes through a process of transformation required by the situation that life presents her with by breaking old paradigms, facing fears and dismantling prejudices.

Age Recommendation: 15+ *Contains strong/moderate language throughout and scenes that may be unsuitable younger audiences.

Available to watch between 15th - 21st October.

Screening as part of Cinemagic Belfast.
