A Look Into the Real Lives of Non-Binary People
"Neither" is an ethnographic portrait of people outside the gender binary. The film explains how complex, diverse, and creative gender performances can be.
For Romeo, who calls himself “transform”, gender is fluid, a form that can change. The camera follows Romeo with beard and high heels into the subculture of Swiss gender queers.
Mir, who lives in Nijmegen in the Netherlands, fits neither in the female nor in the male gender box. Feeling more a man than a woman, more Mike than Mirjam, Mir puts on a beard to calm down.
Made by Made by Babette Burgi, a culture studies student at the University of Zurich, "Neither" also shows how the filmmaker discovers new forms to perform her own gender identity.
