Transit Havana

Audience Award CinéDOC-Tbilisi, Georgia

Once a year, two doctors from Holland and Belgium come to Havana to perform sex reassignment surgeries. Fidel Castro’s niece Mariela Castro, who has long campaigned for LGBT rights in Cuba, has launched the initiative. But the wait for this life-changing opportunity is long.
After his debut film Nach Wriezen, the audience favourite at Favourites Film Festival 2015, director Daniel Abma accompanies Malú, Odette and Juani, who longingly wait for their operation and encouners a country, which, just like the three protagonists of the film, faces a turning point.
