Bambi | 2013
In 1935, Bambi was born Jean-Pierre Pruvot in a tiny Algerian village. Even as a small child, she was determined to become the woman she always knew herself to be. It was a Cabaret Carrousel de Paris performance in Algiers in the 1950s that provided all the motivation she needed to emigrate to the French capital, assume the stage name of "Bambi" and lead the life she longed for on the music-hall stages. Known since then as Marie-Pierre, the seventy-seven-year old recalls her liberating transformation into a radiant transsexual woman.
