Having covered the conflict in Afghanistan for years, genderqueer filmmaker Jordan Bryon finds himself at a moral crossroads when he is offered access to the Taliban.
Jordan has been filming from the epicentre of the Afghan conflict for over five years, during which time the Taliban retook control of the country. Transition follows the Australian as he navigates life and work as a trans man in the country, alongside Afghan filmmaker Teddy and Iranian photojournalist Kiana. A new job grants Jordan and Teddy unbridled access to a Taliban stronghold, but Jordan must negotiate the ethics and risks of developing genuine relationships with men who are responsible for restricting the freedoms of so many, while also keeping a part of his own identity a secret. It’s a fraught and compelling account of what it takes to maintain one’s own sense of being while also having to protect one’s life.
