The groundbreaking documentary “Gendernauts“ by German film director Monika Treut, released in 1999, was one of the first films about the transgender movement in San Francisco. Open and sensitive portraits of the people who, from birth or at their own choice, with the help of hormones or surgeries, have decided to blur the boundaries between female and male identities.

At the festival, you can also check out director Monika Treut’s latest documentary, “Gendernauts“ (2021), in which she returns to San Francisco twenty years later to see the characters on the film “Gendernauts“ and find out how they are doing today.
