Monika Treut explores the worlds and thoughts of several female to male
transgendered individuals. As with Treuts first film, Jungfrauenmaschine,
Gendernauts, enters a minority sector of San Fransisco culture. The characters
in this film have a lot to complain about, and they do. They are people whose
physical appearance (female) does not match their inner sexual identity (male).
The subject is pinpointed in the film independant of sexual orientation. Leave
your conservative hats at the door, this is going to need your special attention.
Veldig bra dokumentar. Gir et godt innblikk i et lite lokalsamfunn i USA,
der noen FTM transkjønnede har bosatt seg.
En av hovedpersonene døde dessverre av kreft i fjor.
A film journey through a universe of female masculinity. A legendary Drag King
Night in New York is the point of departure for an odyssey to transgendered
worlds, where women become men - some for a night, others for their whole lives.
What motivates them? What changes take place? What do they dream of? The drag
kings of New York meet in clubs and change lustfully into their male alter egos,
parodying them and exploring male eroticism and power strategies. In London we
see women experiment with hormones to become new men and 'cyborgs'. Masculinity and transformation as performance, subversion or existential necessity.
