Despite these trying times, we are happy to report another example of intersex visibility in the popular culture. From VARIETY magazine:
MADRID — Cecilia Roth starrer “Alice,” Ana Piterbarg’s “La Habitación Blanca,” Brazil’s sure-to-be controversial “Princesa,” and Mexico’s “Intersex” look like potential standouts in the just-announced movie project pitching platform MAFF Online by Filmarket Hub, part of the biggest push by far into a virtual marketplace made by any festival in the Spanish-speaking world.
Launched by Spain’s Malaga Festival and Filmarket Hub, a Spain-based year-round online market, MAFF (the Malaga Festival Fund & Co-Production Event) will run April 27 to May 10….
Turning on the young parents of an inter-sexual baby, “Intersex” is produced by Mexico’s Erika Avila, whose credits include Ernesto Contreras’ “I Dream in Another Language.””
We hope that Ms. Avila’s portrait is respectful, educational, and sensitive to the issues that intersex people and our families face. Please share with any and all interested in learning about, supporting, and/or celebrating intersex stories on screen.
