A Happy Man Foto

Marvin, a trans man, lives with Ivan and their two children in Sweden. The unexpected separation from their home country, as well as the slowing down of the whole process of physical and legal transition during the COVID-19 pandemic, intensifies the interaction in their relationship, with their children, relatives and closest colleagues. During this time of subdued timelessness, the two find space for mutual support, acceptance of Marvin’s gender identity, and a redefinition of roles within the family.

Soňa G. Lutherová has a background in social anthropology, and provides an intimate glimpse into the life of a family in this impressive long-term observation, which shows the power of honesty and solidarity in processes of change.
