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

Thought provoking, warm and gentle look at transgenderism
14 June 1999 | by See all my reviews

An illuminating, direct, and honest look at San Francisco's transgender, cross-gender, non-gender community. A number of people in varying states of gender introduce their lives, their choices, and their perspectives on gender -- its creation, reconstruction, definition, redefinition, and "natural" state. There are "women" becoming "men", "men" becoming "women", and "" remaining "". An Army veteran, a video artist, a Penthouse model and nightclub performer, a porn star, musicians, and writers are portrayed sympathetically (indeed, many scenes play almost as home movies among friends) and without sensationalism. The ins and outs of hormone treatments and surgical modification are discussed. Although some will be repulsed and uncomprehending, the very human tone should, hopefully, negate condescension and encourage understanding. A good documentary that should be seen.
