Hungarian-Romanian actress Tünde Skovran is set to premiere her award-winning documentary in Los Angeles on November 11th at NoHo Laemmle Theatre.
The documentary addresses a serious and challenging subject. In a world where awareness of intersex individuals is lacking, Dimakatso endured genital mutilation during childhood, while Sharon, a beauty queen, discovered her concealed male genetics at 21.
As they jointly navigate the intricacies of their identities and confront entrenched societal taboos, their interconnected stories illuminate the resilience and beauty of intersex lives, often concealed in plain sight.
The official summary of the movie:
Born male and female within one single body, a beauty queen and a male-presenting activist break the intersex taboo through a personal and intimate exploration of truth, faith, and belonging.
