INTO MY NAME
Nicolò Bassetti / Italy / 2022 / 94 min
Four young Italian friends’ individual gender transitions, told with an overwhelming, natural sensibility. An honest and poetic film with Elliot Page in the producer’s chair.
Nic, Leo, Raff and Andrea have come together in Bologna, where they are each going through their gender transition. With award-winning Canadian actor and trans man Elliot Page in the producer’s chair, ‘Into My Name’ gently revolves around the four young people’s transitions and personal stories, while providing a unique insider’s look at hormones, surgery, the longing for facial hair and the difficulties of the legal systems. It is a very beautiful, human and important film that lets us sense and feel the lived experience of its four protagonists.
