Neither / Weder Noch mit Bart
- Babette Bürgi
- 45 min
Babette Bürgi has been making documentary films since 2012 and she has recently graduated in Popular Culture and Cultural Analysis from the University of Zurich with the film Neither. Besides gender issues and ethnogrphic film, she is also interested in migration, the body and sexuality, transculturality and cyber-anthropology.
The film Neither is an ethnographic portrait of those outside the classical gender dichotomies, those whose gender is fluid and transformative – a form that changes. The camera follows a bearded Romeo in high heels and Miro who prefers to be called Mike than Mirjam. The film thus tries to explain the difficulty of defining the category of gender and to depict the multitude of creative gender transformations.
