Transfiction has been shot as part of a practice-based PhD in Drama and explores 'ethnofiction', an experimental ethnographic film style in which the participants collaborate with the filmmaker to act out their own and others' life experiences in improvisations. The film focuses on identity and discrimination in the daily lives of transgendered Brazilians living in São Paulo.
