Documentary Short Film Contest 49 ED. 2021
Sweden – Finland 2021 11' Documentary
The curiosity about a world without gender sets a journey through a world of jellyfish and disco uncles, creating the environment for four trans to share how they relate (or not) to their own gender, imagine visions of their own queer utopia, and reveal whether gender can be felt in the toes.
DIRECTION: Anniina Joensalo
Anniina Joensalo (they/them) is a Helsinki based film director and writer who uses film as a medium for creating relatable utopias for queer and trans people. They are graduating from their MFA at HDK-Valand in 2021. They aim to find ethical ways to represent queer bodies on image, with a special focus on trans narratives. Through their practice, they propose alternative ways of being and existing in this world – ways that fall outside the binary of language, bodies, and identities.
