Call Me Malcolm (2004) - FtM transgender minister
A documentary feature about a [female-to-male] transgender seminary student, and his struggle with love, faith, and gender identity.
From the Synopsis:
Eventually, Malcolm, while still under the name Miriam, ended up at seminary. Initially he enrolled to see if he could reconcile the conflict between his heart and the things being taught in his home church.
Much to his surprise, Malcolm found his greatest support in his new Christian community at Iliff Theological Seminary and began the process of gender transition. The first—and in some ways biggest—of these steps was taking on his new name and repeatedly saying to people, "From now on, call me Malcolm."
As the film begins, so does Malcolm's final year of seminary. It is a time filled with great concern and apprehension. Before the school term begins, he steps away from his safe environment and sets out on a road trip. He travels across the country visiting with many people along the way, each of whom have a different perspective on the issues of identity, faith, and love.
