Description

Winner of the Best Film Award at the 2018 Docaviv Film Festival. A candid documentary about the challenges an Israeli family faces when the father transitions to a woman. Though her wife and children are unwavering in their love and support, the process eventually takes a toll on the family dynamic. Family in Transition avoids false optimism as it explores the challenges that the characters face. This seldom-explored issue in Israeli film history is handled with sensitivity and charm.
