Original title: Identities
Year: 2008
Languages: English
Duration: 81min

Five personal stories give shape to the different but parallel worlds of Transvestism, Transsexualism, Drag, Sexual identity and Gender dysphoria.

Intimate observational footage introduces us to the world of each character.  Documented in a series of revealing black and white interviews, each narrative is preceded by a colour performance art piece, and more abstract self-representation.  Personal histories charting hardship, rejection and discrimination will be placed in a wider social, political and religious context through these characters’ personal experiences.
