Ni d'Ève ni d'Adam. Une histoire intersexe

2018 / France / documentary

Director: Floriane Devigne

French with English and Lithuanian subtitles, 58 min

Cinema “Skalvija”, A. Goštauto g. 2, Vilnius
September 6 — 5.45 PM (followed by discussion with Deborah Abate)

M and Deborah, like an estimated 1.7 percent of people, were born Intersex – with sex characteristics that are different from the binary understandings of male or female. Sometimes these differing characteristics may not be apparent at birth, and other variations may not be apparent until puberty. Like many, M and Deborah were forced into unnecessary medically surgeries to “normalize” their body as a child – before they could understand what was going on. The film reflects on the way intersex people seek to reappropriate their bodies and construct their identities.
