Review:

KROW’S TRANSFORMATION begins at the end. The end of Krow’s career as a female model, the end of his life in a body and gender that do not fit. Having cut off his ponytail and discarded his name, Krow takes us by the hand and lead us through his unique journey with gender and its performative nature in the world of modelling.

The film is honest and cutting. Laced with interviews of Krow’s friends, relatives, and mentors, it provides an unfiltered account of the hardships of transitioning not only for the person in question but also for those around them. The film is mostly set in Krow’s home and surroundings, and frequently utilises personal photographs and artefacts to paint a detailed and intimate picture of Krow’s journey to find a home in his own body.

This is a personal story, but it is also much bigger than that. For every frank and unflinching story Krow narrates, there is a statistic contextualising how his story fits within the broader picture of trans experience. With its intensely relevant subject matter, KROW’S TRANSFORMATION could not have come at a more vital time. By bringing trans voices to the big screen, the film offers a much needed platform for understanding and empathy. / Review by Pihla Pekkarinen
