About Self-Made Man:
Self-Made Man is a feature length documentary that takes a candid look at what it means to be transgender, told through an intimate portrait of trans youth advocate Tony Ferraiolo.
Gender identity first appears in childhood and some kids feel that they were born in the wrong body. It is a scary time for both them and their parents as they make the transition journey from one gender to the other. This is a film about someone who helps them get there safely.
A Self-Made Man is told through the poignant personal story and important life work of Tony Ferraiolo, a transgender youth advocate. We watch Tony guide kids as young as 8, and their parents, through the confusing journey of defining themselves, when their physical appearance conflicts with how they view themselves.
As Tony comes to terms with all the complexities of his own life as a female-to-male transgender person, the kids in the youth group and their parents grapple with the reality of their uncertain future.
A Self-Made Man examines the complicated dynamics of transitioning from multiple perspectives.
