Things We Dare Not Do

In the small Mexican coastal village of El Roblito, 16-year-old Nono lives what seems to be an idyllic existence with his loving family. But he holds a secret. Defying gender norms, Nono works up the courage to tell his family he wants to live his life as a woman. Yet when violence interrupts a community celebration, he must face the reality of a country shrouded in machismo and transphobia. In the accompanying POV Short Film: Share, an 18-year-old Instagram influencer attempts to reconcile his identity online with his identity in real life.
