Masculinity/Femininity

En Masculinity/Femininity el cineasta experimental Russell Sheaffer continúa donde terminó su cortometraje Masculinity & Me, protagonizado por James Franco. Rodada principalmente en super8, éste no es un documental típico. Sheaffer pide a cineastas, académicxs, teóricxs de género y artistas que presenten sus conceptos de construcción de género y el resultado funciona más como una especie de performance que como narración. Ya sea a través de monólogo, arte visual, performance, o historia, individuos como B. Ruby Rich, Susan Stryker, Barbara Hammer, John Greyson, Chris Vargas, e Yvonne Tasker presentan sus experiencias personales frente a las construcciones sociales normativas. Cada actuación es única, pero lxs espectadorxs podrán ver algo de sí mismos en cada una de ellas. —— Experimental filmmaker Russell Sheaffer’s Masculinity/Femininity takes over where his short film starring James Franco, Masculinity & Me, left off.  Shot mainly on super8 film, this is not a typical documentary. Sheaffer asks filmmakers, academics, gender theorists, and artists to present their concepts of gender construction in what works as a sort of performance piece rather than as full-on narrative. In fact, the filmmakers themselves question whether Masculinity/Femininity is scripted or not.  Whether through monologue, visual art, performance art, or storytelling, individuals including B. Ruby Rich, Susan Stryker, Barbara Hammer, John Greyson, Chris Vargas and Yvonne Tasker represent the personal experiences they have had with gender-normative societal constructs. Each performance is unique, but somehow viewers will be able to see something of themselves in each one.
