About this submission
“Heart whispers” is a reflective abstract short exploring my journey through adolescence, developing my own voice & struggling to belong as a trans man. A story about rebirth and alignment with self. I wanted to explore how I developed a unique voice and my journey growing into a body I could call home. I aimed to make this a non-medicalized trans story, straying away from how mainstream media represent trans people, obsessing over the body and it's medical changes. Instead, this film expresses the inner transformation of a trans person and shows a stark shift in outlook on their life.
