Synopsis

"Threshold" is an autobiographical documentary made by a mother who follows the gender transition of her adolescent son: between 2016 and 2019 she interviews him addressing the conflicts, certainties and uncertainties that pervade him in a deep search for his identity.

At the same time, the mother, revealed through a first-person narration and by her voice behind the camera that talks to her son, also goes through a process of transformation required by the situation that life presents her with by breaking old paradigms, facing fears and dismantling prejudices.

Reviews

Durante la película la directora une un entorno muy íntimo, con la vida social, en un montaje muy cuidado.

— C7nema

La película es una mirada interesante a la identidad de género, que explora estos temas actuales de una manera reflexiva y emocionalmente sensible.
