‘Transkids,’ Israeli documentary about transgender teens, gets virtual screening.


In honor of International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia, three Bay Area organizations will present a virtual panel discussion Tuesday about transgender identity in Israel, featuring the director of the Israeli documentary “Transkids” and two of the teenagers in the film. “Transkids,” which is in Hebrew with English subtitles, can be streamed for free in the U.S. and Canada through May 27 on the Eventive platform. It documents the gender transition of four Jewish Israeli teens: Romy, Liron, Noam and Ofri. First broadcast as a series on Israeli television in 2019, the film was shot over a period of four years and shows how the teens navigate their home lives, school, the medical system and the military enlistment process. Riva Gambert, director of the East Bay International Jewish Film Festival, called the film “mind opening” and told J. it will help viewers deepen their knowledge of the LGBTQ community in Israel. “It’s a good film, and you really connect with those in it,” she said.
