Monika Treut explores the worlds and thoughts of several trans-gendered individuals. As with Treuts first film, Jungfrauenmaschine, Gendernauts, enters a minority sector of San Fransisco culture. The individuals in this film are people whose (genetically) assigned gender does not match their social gender identity. The subject is pinpointed in the film independent of sexual orientation. Leave your conservative hats at the door, this is going to need your special attention. Written by

A delightful and even-handed exploration of real "gender-benders"
A delightful and even-handed exploration of real "gender-benders", the film-maker went to San Francisco (of course!) to find utterly charming and sincere female-to-male transsexuals. We are treated to wonderful interviews with five fascinating people, each at a different stage of their transformation, along with their friends, doctors and acquaintances. Highly recommended.
