CGiii Comment

The directors of this emotional documentary, tell the stories of their characters to help normalize the phenomenon of transgender children. But their intention collides with an unforeseen stumbling block: the juvenile public prosecutor’s office, to protect Violeta, recommends that in the film she can not be recognized, that her face can not be seen. Encouraged by this paradox, the directors find an elegant and effective way to solve the apparent blind alley that culminates in the final scene.

Los directores de este emotivo documental, entretejen las historias de sus personajes para contribuir a normalizar el feno?meno del transge?nero infantil. Pero su intencio?n choca con un escollo imprevisto: la fiscali?a de menores, en su afa?n de proteger a Violeta, recomienda que en la peli?cula no se la pueda reconocer, que no se le vea el rostro. Estimulados por esta paradoja, los directores encuentran una forma elegante y efectiva de resolver el aparente callejo?n sin salida que culmina en la escena final.
