Prince of Dreams

A documentary that introduces us to a human being who never asked to be at the center of an ongoing culture war. We spend a decade together with Erik, from when he was a teenager and still trapped in his female identity, through his transition, right up to the moment when he embarks on a pilgrimage walk in France, an attempt to bring himself out of a depression. The liberating and challenging aspects of a gender adjustment are portrayed; we also meet Martyna, Erikā€™s future wife, and his family who struggle with his situation over the years. The directorā€™s experience in psychology may have helped her get close to her subject; she really finds a good story worth telling in all that footage and the results are engaging, warm and enlightening.

2021-Sweden. 87 min. Color. Produced, written and directed byĀ Jessica Nettelbladt.

Trivia: Original title: Drƶmprins.Ā
