Storyline

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 kwedgwood@hotmail.com, edited by April Kester

Slap in the face
9 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I wasn't impressed with this movie at all. I didn't find it a warm and gentle look at all. I felt like although they said they would accept that wasn't the way I felt watching the movie. However, it seemed from the way they were acting, saying things like they don't care if people are confused about their gender, they like having people confused, that they really don't accept those who don't believe what they do. I felt that they really needed to show more of the straight, non-transgender point of view. This was supposed to be a documentary and I didn't see all the viewpoints represented. This movie was more like a slap in the face.
