Short Film: MASCARA, 10min., Italy, LGBT/Family

Manuel is a transgender teenager who is facing the first tough moments of his gender dysphoria. Every attempt to mirror the male sex to which he feels he belongs is useless. Having to hide his true nature from the people around him is an additional suffering to live with. His mother, however, understands what is happening and, with inevitable concern, decides to stay next to him, explaining in a letter how much the love she feels for him goes beyond anything.
