TRANS - I Got Life offers rarely seen insights into trans people's often torn sense of life and the complex psychological, hormonal and often also surgical aspects of their transition. As one voice in the film states: ‘Trans is not a curse or a disease, it's a path.’

Directors Imogen Kimmel and Doris Metz gained the trust of seven people who decided to go their own way. The film distills the broad spectrum of trans identity from their stories.

TRANS - I Got Life is a sensual journey into the in-between worlds beyond fixed gender norms, into intimate living spaces and into the operating theatre, a place that becomes the delivery room for a second birth. With a subtle and multi-layered approach, the film also explores the trans experience on a unique visual and sound level.

The documentary issues a plea for people to no longer define themselves by the 0.3% of DNA that distinguishes us, but rather by the 99.7 percent that unites us. At the same time, the film looks at the social debate of a world in which gender is no longer defined in terms of black and white but is instead understood in a more fluid way. TRANS - I Got Life concerns and touches everyone who lives in this world.
