Cyberfeminism on Film: Gendernauts: A Journey Through Shifting Identities (18)

Part of New Suns

Tex in Gendernauts by Monika Treut

New German Cinema alumnus Monika Treut journeys through late 1990s San Francisco, meeting trans and intersex artists who live, love and work at the cutting edge of gender and digital technologies.

Marking the 20th anniversary of its original release, this screening offers an opportunity to experience its vision of gender fluidity and self-determination.

With a sharp and curious eye, honed by a long career observing and participating in sexual subcultures in Berlin, Treut explores the Bay Area, where new gender formations met more utopian ideas of technology, before the tech giants became omnipresent. Featuring legendary trans thinkers and activists Susan Stryker and Sandy Stone, along with trans and intersex artists and their partners, Gendernauts is living history on film.
