Voorgesteld op zondagavond 22 november 2009 te IHECS in het kader van de studiedag tijdens het festival « Van alle genders thuis ».

The film aims to give Trans’ people whose quest for gender identity is fettered by established norms a chance to voice their tribulation.
Their means of resistance consist of searching for tools of knowledge, for corporealities, sexualities and alternative identities to those of the conventional schemas.

Far from the usual treatment of Trans issues, this film, through the choice of its portrait subjects - all contemporary actors and precursors of the Trans’and Intersex movement in France - addresses the gender identity issues head-on by questioning our often unchallenged societal norms and analyzing the nature of the oppression and repression faced by the Trans’ and Intersex community.
