Mohammed to Maya is a feature-length documentary that examines issues of transsexualism, religion, and traditionalism against the backdrop of a single person’s dramatic story. The film follows one year in the life of Maya Jafer (formerly Mohammed Jafer), a 42 year-old Muslim from Chennai, India, as she undergoes sexual reassignment surgery in Bangkok, Thailand. This is a collaboration with the NYU LGBTQ Student Center.
