Based on the book "My Name Is Lucy" by director Gabriella Romano, this documentary tells the life story of 85-year-old man-to-woman transsexual Lucy. Lucy contributes a hitherto neglected view with descriptions of her experiences as a transsexual person during the most dramatic events of the 20th century: Fascism, deportation to a concentration camp in Dachau, the Italian economic miracle after World War II, and sexual liberation. A precious document. (Gender Bender Festival, Bologna) This authentic documentary by writer, journalist and independent filmmaker Gabriella Romano is an extraordinary and touching testimony.
