Resistència Trans

Documentary, 72 minutes 

Directed by Claudia Reig

Spain, 2019

Language: Spanish, Catalan 

Subtitles: English 


Entertaining yet militant documentary on Carmen and Gloria, two trans women with very different biographies and transition experiences. Carmen has been expressing herself as a woman since her teenage years and finds herself in a constant struggle for her individual freedom. Gloria only begins transitioning at the age of 45, in a precarious economic situation, and she doesn’t dare to openly confront her family and society. Documentary director Claudia Reig follows both of them, to the registry office, to the theatre stage as well as to the authorities, where we see the numerous bureaucratic pitfalls that heteronormative society continues to put in the way of trans people.
