TRANS’IT. Directed by Carlos Rodriguez 34 min. Dominican Republic
The story of three Dominicans living on the edge of gender, male and female. An ode to Trans activists in the Santo Domingo, and how their lives navigate under their gender identity in a state that does not recognize them.

DAARAVTHA (THE THRESHOLD). Directed by Nishant Bombarde 30 min. India
An adolescent Pankaj is discovering his sexuality. Torn between a patriarchal Indian upbringing full of gender-stereotypes and his natural urge to identify with the opposite gender, he finds an opportunity to express his desires within the bounds of cultural ethos.
