A MAN MUST BE STRONG, by Elsi Perino and Ilaria Ciavattini

Italy. 2019. 61 '. Documentary. VOSTF.

Jack is 28 years old. He was born and raised in this valley where he still lives. He has a part-time job, a mother who has been collecting her husband's retirement benefits since the age of 32, and an older brother who has moved to the suburbs of Milan to take up a job as a laborer. factory. His father died when Jack was only 3 when he was still Jessica. Now, Jack has decided to become what he always felt like: a man.

"A man must be strong" is the sober and moving portrait of a young boy from a popular background that we follow in his transition process. With a great maturity, Jack wonders what it means to be a man and what kind of man he would like to be, contrary to the models of masculinity offered by the valley. The relationship he weaves with his big brother (barely over 3 years old) is extremely touching as he takes him under his wing with respect, love and kindness. A documentary of a rare humanity.
