Ways In Between Gender

100% HUMAN (Norway, 73 min., 2005)
by Jan Dalchow and Trond Winterkjaer

The Ways In Between Gender screening series runs at Hallwalls on the first Friday of every month, February through May, 2006. Co-sponsored by Spectrum, Transgender Group of WNY, Western NY's Transgender Support Group.

Monica has been confiding in a camera during the months before and after her operation, producing a very rare video diary. Her total honesty, sense of humor, and direct way of revealing her experiences will break down myths and prejudice towards people in her situation.

100% HUMAN consists of an unusual mix of genres: personal video diary, musical performances, re-enactments and traditional cinema-veritè scenes. Monica's musical numbers add depth to her story in a very poetic and untraditional way, making this film a challenge to the traditional documentary in much the same way Monica challenges traditional gender definitions."
