Nel Mio Nome (Into My Name): Nicolò Bassetti’s Film, Produced by Elliot Page

Oscar Nominee Elliot Page Joins Gender Documentary ‘Nel Mio Nome’ as Executive Producer

Director Nicolò Bassetti’s new film, Nel Mio Nome, which will premiere at the Berlin Film Festival, follows a tight-knit group of friends going through gender transitions.


Oscar nominated actor and activist Elliot Page has signed on as an executive producer for Nel Mio Nome (Into My Name), a transgender documentary from Italian director Nicolò Bassetti (Magnificent Fortunes), which will premiere at the 2022 Berlin Film Festival next month.

Bassetti’s documentary follows a group of four friends from different parts of Italy as they transition from a female to a male gender identity at different times in their lives. The director says the film is rooted in his experience with the gender transition of his own son Matteo.

“What stands out to me about Nel Mio Nome is the way it so artfully and intentionally presents all the different pieces that make up a person’s identity,” Page said in a statement. “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.”
