DOCUMENTARY & CLOSING FIKA
GARAGET 15 APRIL 18.00
Director: Sophie Dros Country: The Netherlands Year: 2017 Runtime: 67 minutes Language: Dutch Subtitles: English Genre: Documentary
story about five young people who neither feel male or female, but
rather position themselves somewhere in between. Every day they
are confronted with being different, yet they are proud to be who
they are. The young people in this film all have their own struggles
but together they tell a strong story about acceptance.
GENDERBLEND plays with the curiosity, interest and in comprehension of anything outside the mainstream gender norm. Isn’t everyone’s gender actually ‘fluid’? Wouldn’t it be liberating if we
could break the narrow-mindedness about gender? The five “gender
fluid” characters make us question our sometimes-rigid society and
offer a moment of reflection, how male or female are you?
