ICH BIN ANASTASIA

Germany. 2019. 95 '. Documentary. VOSTF.
Director: Thomas Ladenburger

The story of Anastasia Biefang, lieutenant-colonel of the German army, assigned a man at birth and who decides at the age of 40 to make his transition. To her surprise, she suffered no negative consequences in her military career and became the first female trans commander in the history of the Bundeswehr.

In this gripping documentary, Thomas Ladenburg describes Anastasia's transition process and the reactions of those around her to the new situation. If her parents were surprised at first, then they gave full support to their child, as did her companion and the first Bundeswehr superior to whom Anastasia revealed herself, reacting with empathy and continuing to encourage her in his career. A work full of humor and tenderness which shows that prejudices and skepticism can give way to acceptance, including in circles deemed "conservative".
