Thanks to Koen Suidgeest for the invitation to see his short documentary M/F/X at the Roze Filmdagen in Amsterdam. The film offers a rare glimpse into the struggle of “three transgenders from Vietnam, Honduras and the Netherlands”.
The film screens again as part of the festivals short docu-programme, you can see it again on Wednesday 20 March 2019, 17:45 at the Ketelhuis, Westerpark. There is also the opportunity to meet Kim Shantal, one of the films transgender individuals. If you go, you should also visit Koen’s photo exhibition of people he met during the production but who did not make it into the film.
According to the filmmaker and photographer Koen those “stories were also so compelling that we decided to make this exhibition”. Both film and exhibition are little gems you will enjoy at the Roze Filmdagen.
