Into My Name (Nel mio nome)
An executive producer of this film is Elliot Page, transgender actor and creator. Nicolo Bassetti’s documentary is inspired by his own experience as a father of transgender Matteo.
The film tells us the story of four transgender men – Nico, Leo, Andrea and Rafo – who met in Bologna after each one of them started his transition. It’s a story about growing up and friendship. It’s important to hear stories like these, especially when it comes to queer voices.
Elliot was endeared by deep analysis of multiple shades of human personality: “I’ve never watched a film like this before. Bassetti often consulted what he was creating with his son; I find it very beautiful and I think it’s noticeable in what we see on the screen. I’m honoured that I joined the team on the film set. I can’t wait for everyone to see this”.
