Who I Am Not

Documentary Section

What makes a man and what makes a woman? Where do society and biology draw the line, and how do people born directly on this line fit in the binary world? Influencer Sharon is the Miss South Africa finalist, and Dimakatso is a non-binary activist. Although they are complete opposites, they share the one label of intersexuality, together with 150 million other people. The quest to find one’s identity and place in the world will take us to a genetics specialist, shamanic rituals and emotional interviews with current and potential members of this family. But the main message of the movie remains: you are that kind of human as only you can define yourself, and nobody else has any say. The documentary was created thanks to the close cooperation of the director with the two protagonists and will surprise you with its utter mutual trust and honesty on a topic otherwise quite overlooked. The film has won many awards at major festivals – at Docs Barcelona, in Krakow, at Doc Edge in New Zealand, and as many as three awards in Thessaloniki.
