Plot
Thousands of Trans Women live in the big cities of Turkey. Since 2009 there has been an increase in the murder of Trans* but the perpetrators can usually rely on being exempted from prosecution. Ebru K., a trans woman from Istanbul, fights against the displacement and murder of her companions. For 25 years, she has been active in defending human rights and the rights of LGBTIQ. She wants to change the Turkish society with humour, self-irony and political acumen. She meets Margarethe, a 85-year-old German retired nurse and mother of the filmmaker, and establishes a retirement home for trans. Urban transformation of Istanbul and the protests around the Gezi Park resonate throughout the film. Trans X Istanbul is a personal documentary film and part of a multi-platform project about the human rights situation of transgender people (trans) in Turkey.
Director's Statement
The film wants to make people visible, who have fought for their ability to act spontaneously and humorously to give themselves their dignity and honour back, which the state and society had taken from them with an ancient cross-cultural power mechanism: a personal visible characteristic as the criterion for exclusion.
