CGiii Comment

Cross Dreamers is the life story of 4 men who practice cross-dressing in Argentina. From an early age they had the need to transit the feminine. With the clothes, the makeup, the heels and the construction of a feminine identity, "Cross" seek to feel like women for a short time of their lives. However these 50 to 60 year old men had to repress this desire throughout their lives because they felt like monsters and hid it from their wives and children.

Thanks to the birth of the internet they were able to get in touch with each other and feel more relieved finding a denomination that identified them as Crossdressers.

The documentary comes into their lives at a time when they can no longer stand lies and double identities and they need to tell their families. Each one makes their own way but all travel towards the liberation of assuming that they are also a she.

Crossdreamers is the first documentary in Argentina about cross dressing, a practice much more frequent than imagined, carried out mainly by men who are between 40 and 70 years old today.

This film changed the lives of the protagonists, helping them to reveal their gender identity to their family and friends. And that's why we want the film to be seen all over the world, so that all those cross dressers who are isolated know that they are not alone. And even more important, that all of us as a society continue leading the way so that no one feels like a monster.

Cross Dreamers is the path to liberation from all the prejudices that keeps us from being who we want to be.
