What do you do when your seven-year-old child who was assigned male at birth identifies as female? Do you embrace their budding sense of self? In this short-form documentary these questions are grappled with through one mother’s journey as her child, Nori, learns about her gender. Trivial compromises of skirts preferred over pants and long hair to short slowly grow into life or death decisions as Nori becomes increasingly aware of not just who she wants to see in the mirror, but also who she feels herself to be in her heart. An honest, tender portrait of a family that acts as a window into the realities and emotions of gender identity. GIRL HEARTED plays with a selection of short films focused on the intersection of family, social issues and the notion of self.
