Melting Away by Doron Eran (Israel, 2011, 86 min.). When Assaf’s parents discover women’s clothing under his mattress, the teen is forced to move out. Assaf becomes a woman, Anna, singing at gay bars in Tel Aviv at night and pretending to be a nurse by day. Anna’s mother searches for her “son” after her husband is diagnosed with terminal cancer in this tender, fulfilling story. For the first time in Israeli cinema, a feature film shows parents learning to deal with a transgendered child. In Hebrew with English subtitles.
