Filmmaker Hilla Medalia (Dancing in JaffaCensored Voices) spent four years filming and interviewing four Israeli teenagers undergoing gender transformation. The result is an unprecedented documentary examining the social, emotional and physical challenges faced by the adolescents and their families as they navigate the various stages of the process. How does one cope with a body that is misaligned with your gender? How do parents cope when their children turn out to be different than who they thought they were? TRANSKIDS offers an honest exploration of the four young men and women who, despite paying a hefty social price, are no longer afraid of being themselves.
