DIE KATZE WÄRE EHER EIN VOGEL ...
The cat would rather be a bird ...
Dokumentarfilm von Melanie Jilg
D 2007, 55 Min., Tonformat 2.0
Ein «visuelles Hörstück» zu einem lange verschwiegenen Thema,
zu Sprach- und Wissensgrenzen rund um ein tabuisiertes Phänomen.
What effect has the challenge of your sex, one of the most important basic of our culture, to your daily life?
They speak about strangeness in their bodies and foreignness and tabooization in society and the
obsessive conformation to the heterosexual standard by grave surgeries; no possibility to express yourself
because there are no suitable words and nobody knows anything about intersex (except the medical scientists).
But, of course, there is the desire for public perception and acceptance. So where is the real problem?
This film does not want to give a medical or biological explanation for the “phenomenon: intersex”!
NO medical scientists or pictures of intersexual genitals!
It`s just an simple, straightforward experiment
to listen to those people who kept silent for a long time
and from whom we could learn a lot.
