Feature Length Documentary | 2022
AWARDS & ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
Nico is 33 years-old, Leo is 30, Andrea 25 and Raff 23: they come from different parts of Italy. They start their gender transition at different times in their lives. Day by day, they boldly face all the obstacles of a strictly binary world.
To achieve a fulfilling and dignified life is a matter of survival.
They need to be resolute, infinitely patient and can’t hope to get by without seeing the funny side of the whole matter.

Poignant italian documentary on trans brotherhood
Best press quotes for “Nel Mio Nome” doc
“Tender and poetic (…) Into My Name is an achievement”.
Lovia Gyarkye – THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER (US)
“Elliot Page’s attachment as executive producer will spur interest, but ‘Into My Name’ stands on its own as a sensitive, humanist portrait of four young F to M trans Italians coming into their own. […] Ultimately it’s the film’s own strengths that will see
it find welcoming audiences.”
Jay Weissberg – THE FILM VERDICT (US)
“It’s a meditation on trans humanity and I’ve never seen another film like it. Knowing that Bassetti consulted closely with his trans son throughout production is so beautiful to me, and I think that lived experience and input is clear in the film’s perspective. I’m honored to be onboard and can’t wait for everyone to see it.”
“An empathic tale of transition”
Cristina Piccino – IL MANIFESTO (Italy)
