Artist Sadie Benning’s experimental live-action cartoon uses masks, animation, subtitles, drawings, and dramatic scenes to investigate the psychic life of an androgynous eleven-year-old. Growing up in a working class neighborhood with her single mother and gay roommate, the protagonist confronts the loneliness of living between masculine and feminine in a culture obsessed with defining gender difference.
Sadie Benning, 1998. Black & white; 50 min.
Presented in partnership with Doc Films.
