KIKI

Film stills

Man tai – ramybės uostas, nes čia jaunimui, kuriam gal… ne taip pasisekė, suteikiama galimybė.

How could one find the place in the world which does not provide you one? How can one have self-respect, when it seems that no one  around  understand you the way you are? These and many other questions are being raised by the characters of Kiki, members of American LGBTQ community. For them the encouragement to be themselves sounds more like a challenge. Because of the acute transphobia, finding work and receiving social and health protection become challenging.

To look through the surface and to see the soul of a human being - this is a trait of a good documentary.
