Wariazone

user
Director: Kiwa & Terje Toomistu.
Wariazone explores the notion of transgender in Indonesia and relations between gender identity and freedom. It raises questions about the politicization of morality and religion after the reform era. The male-to-female transsexuals who are known by the artificial word ‘waria’ (wanita, woman + pria, man) are a well-known phenomenon in the cultural mosaic of the country with the world’s largest Moslem community. The warias are often described in the local context as a combination of masculinity and femininity, a third sex, or a woman’s soul born in the body of a man. Traditionally, variations in gender identity have been considered to be holy in many Indonesian cultures, but today the warias have been relegated to an outlaw zone on the outskirts of society. The consequences of the stigmatization based on the rigidity of social constructions (morals, religions, hetero-normativity, etc.) include non-recognition of their gender identity, discrimination, limited work opportunities, the sex industry, and HIV/AIDS. Wariazone not only situates itself within the context of gender and sexuality, but also points out how the expression of gender identity is ruled by ideology: the ‘truth’ is related to the power. Among many activists (Yulianus Rettoblaut, Merlyn Sopjan, Lenny Sugiharto, Ienez Angela, Shinta Ratri, to name a few) and sex workers, Dédé Oetomo (a leading activist for LGBT rights), Julia Suryakusuma (Indonesia's own feminist fatale) and Didik Nini Thowok (legendary cross-dressing performance artist) also appear in the film. Visits are made to several waria gathering places in Jakarta, Yogyakarta, Malang and Surabaya, and to the world's only Koranic school for transgendered people. 

JUST SAYIN'!

In a month’s time, the east coast has been buried with enough snow to wear down even the “but-I-love-the-change-of-seasons” people.  We’re barely a month in and already the winter has worn out it’s welcome, except in those other areas where winter seemingly has no bearing on mood or outcome. I’m talking about Park City, Utah, Santa Barbara and Hollywood, CA, where films and people are hotter than hot this time of year.  I’m talking about the recent distribution of the Golden Gl...

LFF - PINK SARIS [2010] dir Kim Longinotto

#
  PINK SARIS is easily one of the most interesting, relevant and fascinating documentaries I have ever seen. Kim Longinotto has pretty much raised the bar for all the documentaries that will be screening at the London Film Festival this year. Also, it is no wonder that it has been nominated for a few awards.  The film documents and celebrates Sampat Pal, a woman fighting social injustices towards women and girls in Northern India. And Sampat is more than deserving of th...
