Who Am I?


'Who I Am' is a drama short film based on true events, with an original script written by Monika Wilczynska. It is a coming of age tale about Elijah, a young transgender teenager from a very religious background, who has to try to reconcile their identity with their faith and their family’s expectations of them. With the help of anti-conformist Lisbeth and their friends, Elijah learns not to compromise their own integrity in face of prejudice and adversity. The film inquires: can an LGBTQ-identifying person benefit from religion whilst staying true to who they are? Why is it important to tackle identity in regards to religion? How restrictive is our perception of spirituality and divinity? Who I Am does not attempt to answer these questions, but it aspires to open the dialogue to the public on subjects that have been under-represented or taboo for far too long.


Written, Directed and Produced by Monika Wilczynska

Waiting For

Three women face themselves while travelling to a mysterious destination.  A journey to hope in the future and to reconstruct the past.  It's a journey made up of expectations and acknowledgement, love and fight  As Marcel Proust wrote "The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes."

At the end of this voyage our characters will look at the world and themselves with different eyes.
