Lisa Leeman’s groundbreaking film won Sundance’s Filmmakers Trophy and garnered top rating on POV/PBS in 1990. The film intimately chronicles animation artist Gabi P.’s gender transition over three years in the late 80’s. Metamorphosis follows Gabi as she transitions at home, in the workplace, with family and at church. Along the way, the film raises provocative questions about what defines male and female, and questions traditional gender roles.
Lisa has been filming a follow-up for the last five years, as Gabi faces new crossroads in her sixties – see Walk by Me to learn more.
