Call Me Marianna

Poland (2015) | 73 minutes

Director: Karolina Bielawska

What does it mean to be oneself? What is a price to be paid for achieving such a state? Marianna is an attractive 40 year old woman who has just sued her parents in order to obtain a gender reassignment. Alienated by her mother and neglecting her best friends, she seeks refuge in a theatre group where she comes to make sense of her situation by rehearsing a play based on her past. When the days to the operation loom over her, Marianna kindles an unlikely romance with an older gentleman who offers her a ray of hope, but she remains confronted with the idea of losing what she holds dearest to her – her family – and she must face the chilling reminder of the sacrifices one takes to be themselves.
