Boy

Boy,  short film from 16-year-old writer/director Lucas Helth Postma, explores the journey of a transgender boy to be understood by his mother. Born into a female body and given the name Emilie, the main character feels trapped in his physical body. From the first scene of the film it becomes clear that Emilie and his mother have a distant and trying relationship, and their first conversation paints a clear picture of the mother’s blatant denial of Emilie’s identification as male. When Emilie’s mother demands he wear a dress for a formal get-together with friends, their issues come to a head, and the two are forced to confront their differences.
