What we love about this film

Colors of Tobi is a documentary filled with tenderness, love and understanding, as we follow Tobi Tuza and their family on the journey he takes to finding and expressing his identity as a non-binary person in a small Hungarian town, where the ability to self-define your gender is now legally impeded. Alexa Bakony's documentary lens is thoroughly unobtrusive and allows us to witness both the nurturing relationship between Tobi and his family, and the need for trans children to be able to define their lives.
