Call Me Marianna (2015)

Film
Sunday, November 15
8 pm
Cost: Free
The story of a woman who has to choose between her sexual identity and that which is most precious to her; her family. A collaboration with the Polish Film Festival.

Poland | 75 min | NR | Dir. Karolina Bielawska

Her ex-wife won’t meet her. Her daughter rejects her. Her mother still calls her “son.” As Marianna transitions from male to female, she is abandoned by her loved ones, alone in a world unwilling to accept her true self. This multi-award-winning documentary is an intensely sympathetic and powerful account of one individual’s struggle to gain acceptance—even in the midst of profound physical hardship.
