Colors of Tobi (15*) + pre-recorded ScreenTalk with Tobi Tuza and director Alexa Bakony

Cinema on Demand

Alexa Bakony’s moving and uplifting documentary follows a queer teenager keen to move from their rural town to Budapest.

Meet Tobi, a 16-year-old living in a small village in the Hungarian countryside, who can’t wait to leave school and get to Budapest. Tobi, who came out as male in their early adolescence, is now moving towards identifying as non-binary. Tobi’s mother Éva struggles to understand her child’s identity, in a country where trans rights are increasingly diminished.

Alexa Bakony’s documentary evolves into a moving and inspiring portrait of the relationship between a mother and her child. Éva makes mistakes (in one scene she unthinkingly deadnames her child, to Tobi’s distress), but goes on a powerful emotional journey of her own, while Tobi’s conversations with their family make for a poignant and sensitive portrayal of unconditional love.

Followed by a ScreenTalk via Zoom with Tobi Tuza and director Alexa Bakony, hosted by curator Zorian Clayton.
