"MY NAME IS VIOLETA": Sunny Premiere in Cologne with the protagonists
Pride summer is in full swing in many cities and attracts with colorful, exuberant events - of course also in Cologne! On June 22, the inspiring documentary "My Name is Violeta" celebrated its German premiere at the Filmhaus in Cologne. Special guests of the evening were the protagonists Violeta and her mother Franceska. The two traveled from Barcelona to exchange views with the audience in the subsequent film discussion on the topic of trans*. Refreshingly relaxed and open, they answered all the questions that moderator Sonja Hofmann and the audience had: How did the name Violeta come about? What is it like to go through puberty as a trans* girl? And how can parents deal with trans* children?
In the end, everyone agreed: Violeta and her mother are an absolute positive example! Their story inspires trans* people and their relatives at the same time and shows how the right approach in family and school can be successful. That makes courage! And there's more: on June 23, Violeta and Franceska will be guests at the delphi LUX cinema for the Berlin premiere of the documentary.
"My Name is Violeta" opens in German theaters on June 30.
