Our interviews with Transition director and subject Jordan Bryon, director Monica Villamizar, and executive producer Matthew Heineman at their 2023 Tribeca Film Festival premiere.
Transition follows Australian filmmaker Jordan Bryon’s changing life as he reports and lives in a rapidly-collapsing Afghanistan soon into his transition as a trans man. Jordan’s journey becomes more complex when he’s granted exclusive access to a group of Taliban fighters right as the radical, deeply sexually-segregated army is taking control of the country.
As his relationships with these men deepen, Jordan questions these friendships and his transition continues as the country rapidly changes around him. A meditation on the binary, this documentary film explores what it takes to feel at home in our own skin.
