About the project
LOCKLINEThe transition to another gender unleashes much in society. A documentary on the way to standardization of transgender people.

 

 

The gender roles, male and female, as we know them, are deeply rooted in our Western thinking.

This ensures that other gender roles are not yet taken for granted by everyone. Transgender people are increasingly being accepted in society. But there are still large groups of people who reject and condemn Transgender people.

INTRODUCTION

Almere has the only transgender crossing in Europe. Every day people walk from one side to the other. Sometimes they don't know what the path stands for and sometimes they don't see the colours anymore.

This crossing is the starting point for the stories of our protagonists. We follow four transgender people who once made the crossing from one gender to the other. Very often this is preceded by an enormous internal struggle. They were often afraid of being rejected and abandoned. Sometimes that happens too. And that is exactly the reason why many transgender people don't dare take those first steps yet. The documentary shows how people struggled with themselves and what it did to them when they finally made that crossing.

 

WHY

The goal of the documentary is acceptance of Transgenders and ultimately standardization. So that a society emerges where it is not an issue that you are trans. As easily and without thinking about it, people walk the transgender path, transgenders should be part of our society.
