"My Name Is Violeta", selected to participate in the San Sebastian Film Festival in the Made in Spain section
The film has already won the Audience Award and Amnesty International Award at the recent DocsBarcelona festival

"My Name Is Violeta", a THE MEDIAPRO STUDIO and Polar Star Films co-production directed by David Fernández de Castro and Marc Parramon, is set to take part in the San Sebastian Film Festival. The non-competitive section Made in Spain will host the film screening this coming September 27th.

The film was officially presented out of competition at the recent edition of the Malaga Film Festival. "My Name Is Violeta" also took part in the DocsBarcelona Festival, where it won two awards: the Audience Award and the Amnesty International Award.

"My Name Is Violeta" revolves around two very different families who share a common situation: both have trans-gender children. Violeta, 11, daughter of the adult film actor and producer Nacho Vidal, is (so far) having a relatively placid transition, although her parents, baffled, took a while to assume her new identity.

Alan wasn't so lucky, bullied at school, the love of his family wasn't enough to avert a tragic end which moved the entire town where he was born. Based on the two stories, the profoundly moving film shows a society which is making strides in accepting trans-gender children, but which still has a long way to go.
