In The Turn by Erica Tremblay



When she was only five years old, Crystal thought seriously about taking her own life. Having been born in the body of a boy, Crystal was three years old when she said that her true gender was female. Supported by her mother to face her transition, at school Crystal faced a hostile environment, where constant harassment led her to consider giving up her own life. But the discovery of the queer collective of Roller Derby "Vagime Regime" means for Crystal – now a ten-year-old child - the opportunity to belong to a sports team where freedom and respect for life are the main values.

The Wardrobe of Gender by Max Joakim Diezenberg



Are we only allowed to express ourselves as women or men? To what extent does nature play a preponderant role in sexual or gender inclination? This documentary presents three young Dutch people who have left behind the social impositions to listen to what their bodies had to tell them. Watching The Wardrobe of Gender is to look at three little stories that represent one of the most exciting human quests in history, where gender and identity are ambiguous items in constant transformation.
