The filmmakers follow six people who, for different reasons, take on a transgender identity. The before and after of a transformation in which sex change is only a part of the exploration of one’s own identity.
Intimist and radically honest, Female to What the Fuck presents the desires and goals of several trans men living in Vienna in the first person; the reflections on their transition, on their bodies, and the role played by the gaze of others. Among so much queer philosophy and gender theory, all of them come to the same conclusion: the need to leave behind and overcome binarism, the classifications and labels with which society pigeonholes people. And transcending, once and for all, those imposed categories in order to create new and free ways of expressing identities. As Persson points out at a collective meeting: “Everything would become much simpler if we abolished this man/woman thing; if we defined ourselves differently, more like a countersexuality.” AD
