Executive produced by Elliot Page, Nicolò Bassetti’s tender documentary is a love letter to his son who, like the protagonists in Into My Name, is a transgender person. This sensitive and beautiful coming-of-age story follows four friends navigating their lived experiences and relationships, sharing important turning points in their lives and gender transitions. Despite living in different areas in Italy and coming from different backgrounds, they connect through conversations about pronouns, hormone therapy, surgery, and their relationships with their partners—while confronting societal norms, oppressive gender binaries, and legal obstacles that threaten their human rights. In recording these honest and intimate experiences, this film provides a space for trans masculine people to define their identities on their own terms.
Nominee, Panorama Audience Award for Documentary, Berlinale 2022
“What stands out to me about Into My Name is the way it so artfully and intentionally presents all the different pieces that make up a person’s identity…. It’s a meditation on trans humanity and I’ve never seen another film like it.” - Elliot Page, executive producer, Into My Name
