Born to Be

Because You d Born to Be
Documentary LGBTQ 20191h 32mOn: Kanopy Tags: Doctor Country: America

Soon after New York state passed a 2015 law that health insurance should cover transgender-related care and services, director Tania Cypriano and producer Michelle Hayashi began bringing their cameras behind the scenes at New York’s Mount Sinai Hospital, where this remarkable documentary captures the emotional and physical journey of surgical transitioning. Lending equal narrative weight to the experiences of the center’s groundbreaking surgeon Dr. Jess Ting and those of his diverse group of patients, BORN TO BE perfectly balances compassionate personal storytelling and fly-on-the-wall vérité. It’s a film of astonishing access—most importantly into the lives, joys, and fears of the people at its center.Born to Be featuring Leiomy Maldonado and Garnet Rubio is streaming with subscription on Kanopy, available for rent or purchase on iTunes, available for rent or purchase on Google Play, and 2 others. It's a documentary and LGBTQ movie with a high IMDb audience rating of 8.3 (68 votes).
