Der Animationsfilm ermöglicht es, Verborgenes sichtbar zu machen. Eine Stärke, die vor allem beim animierten Dokumentarfilm zum Tragen kommt. Geschützt durch die Animation offenbaren die Filme dieses Programms Intimitäten, sexuelle Orientierungen oder nähern sich sehr persönlich der eigenen Familiengeschichte an. (Auto)Biografische Lebensgeschichten von Transpersonen gehören dabei ebenso dazu, wie einschneidende Lebensereignisse. Dabei entsteht ein mutiges, bisweilen schonungsloses Porträt des Lebens voller subtiler Zwischentöne. Dauer: 78'
