Who I Am Now


When Tariq’s older brother arrives from Egypt, he’s forced to confront the complicated feelings towards his family. Denise, his friend, a fellow trans refugee and teammate, shares her own story. A film about the family we're born into and the families we make from our friends.

This is a trans led film, made by a trans director and majority trans and queer crew. The cast features Talisa Garcia, Disney's first openly trans actress (Willow) and BAFTA winner Adam Kashmiry. This film is meant to highlight how we within the community tell our stories to each other, details can be left unsaid both to avoid triggering trauma and because we often share similar experiences.
