COME AS YOU ARE
Director: Ava Meijer
This intimate documentary shows the journey of a woman in a male body, going through a life changing experience. After fifty years she is finally becoming who she really is: Djiordjina.
Today we live in a world where people are being influenced by how the media portrays success and beauty. We are told what a good person should look like. But then: “Who am I and what is my dream?” With the rise of social media it has become easier to control how others see you, ignoring the bigger question of what you want in life, of what really matters. Djiordjina will break through these barriers, despite her cultural and religious background, her father, her children, her age, and anyone who thinks differently from her.
Duration: 60 minutes
