Film Series: XXY

2007. Argentina. Dir: Lucía Puenzo. With Inés Efron, Martín Piroyansky. 91 min. 35mm print.


Stereotypes surrounding gender and sexuality are wonderfully inverted in this tale of an intersex teen reconsidering her self-identity. Puenzo renders her protagonist with bittersweet ambiguity, reminding us that the constructs of masculinity and femininity have little to do with the beauty of being human.
