IMA alumna Sasha Wortzel’s short film Fucking Different XXY premiered on January 22nd as part of the final selection for the Panorama documentaries in the <a” href=”http://www.berlinale.de/en/das_festi” title=”link to page detailing the objective of Panorama target=”””>Berlinale film festival.
Fucking Different XXY intends finally to dissolve the binarity of classic gender identities. The film series attempts to overturn stereotypes about the ‘other’ and what’s ‘normal’ – stereotypes which also exist in the queer community. To quote the film’s own motto: break stereotypes, create confusion and celebrate diversity!
Congrats to Deirdre Fishel who won a MacArthur grant for her documentary project. Care, is a documentary that features the challenges of home-based elder care providers. Her film is featured on the 2014 MacArthur grant announced on the Filmmaker Magazine website.
