My Child

Director: Can Candan
Turkey, 2012, 82’

Benim Çocuğum takes us in to five different households in Turkey. We listen to lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans kids stories from their parents point of view. All the stories have denial, trauma, helplessness, fear, shame, acceptance and rebirth themes in common. While a mother worries that her kid is going to be hurt, the other one remembers the first bra she bought for her trans daughter. A grandmother asks “Is this from God?” and she is ready to accept what is from God. These parents that accepted their kids as they are in a transphobic and homophobic society, redefine being an activist while sharing their experiences. The documentary that takes its power from the parents love is a simple and sincere expression of the most powerful resistance against homophobia and transphobia.
