TRANSITION – Interview with Filmmakers and Subjects Monica Villamizar, Jordan Bryon, and Kiana Hayeri

Filmmaker/Subject Jordan Bryon’s harrowing transformation is intriguing on itself.  Jordan and Filmmaker Monica Villamizar documented this transition while Jordan was embedded in Afghanistan amongst Taliban soldiers.  Jordan, Monica and journalist Kiana Hayeri joined our Gadi Elkon for an amazing chat about this powerful documentary.

As the Taliban retake control of Afghanistan, filmmaker Jordan Bryon, a trans man, gains unprecedented access to a group of Taliban fighters. He embeds with the unit at great personal risk and embarks on a journey of self-discovery navigating moral and ethical dilemmas while trying find humanity in the darkest of places.

Transition dives into the transformation of Jordan but also perceptions of the Taliban, the story of the women left to survive in Afghanistan, and those hoping to keep an eye on them all.

Here is our Interview with Filmmakers Monica Villamizar and Jordan Bryon and subject Kiana Hayeri:

The documentary is available TVOD and Digitally starting tomorrow Tuesday March 26th, 2024.
