Transfixed

Released June 3rd 2016

A film by Alan Kol

Produced by Alan Kol and Julia Morgan

Transfixed tells the story of highly unconventional romance: Martine Stonehouse and John Gelmone are middle-aged underdogs, living with Asperger Syndrome - an autism spectrum disorder that makes communication with others extremely difficult.

 Despite their social limitations, both dream of getting married, but straight identifying John refuses to tie the knot until transsexual Martine gets a real vagina. The only problem: no doctor in Canada will perform operation because Martine's obesity makes her too great of a surgical risk. Will Martine and John find the happiness together that they deserve?

 Transfixed is a deeply human story about love, freedom, and self-actualization through love.

CANADA | 2014 | DOCUMENTARY | 74 MINUTES | HD

FRENCH WITH ENGLISH AND FRENCH SUBTITLES

It’s heady stuff rescued from ivory-tower theorizing and placed in the context of the real world and real people, making Transfixed a timely, important film.
