Tedium (2008)

Sobre o filme

Seven Iranian transsexuals living in Tehran who live pieces of their own lives on the screen. Boys who like to be girls and a girl with a boy’s spirit and energy! Their spirits are not at one with their bodies, and this is a problem more forceful and burdensome in Iran’s Islamic society with its religious precepts and tradition of patriarchy. One can sense the depth of their loneliness and tedium when one sees that they are not accepted even by their own families. These are young people estranged from their own bodies and spirit, and exhausted by this estrangement from themselves and a society that gives no right whatsoever to sex minorities.
