Twenty-six years after intimately chronicling artist Gabi P.’s gender transition in the groundbreaking film Metamorphosis (Sundance’s Filmmakers Trophy 1990; POV), Lisa Leeman reconnects with Gabi. Age 68, four years sober, and a devout Christian, Gabi stands at a new and unexpected crossroads. Filmed over five years, probing universal themes of aging, faith, and identity, Trans*Formed is a story of struggle and resiliency – against the backdrop of society’s persistent transphobia. Look for a Trans*Formed premiere in 2020, 30 years after Metamorphosis was released!
