PFLAG San Francisco and BDO USA, LLP Present:
THREE TO INFINITY: BEYOND TWO GENDERS is a timely, fascinating film about people whose gender is neither male nor female. This groundbreaking documentary – the first to explore the world of people who are outside of the gender binary – changes the ways we think about masculinity and femininity. The film transports viewers on an intense cinematic journey to a previously un-examined gender frontier.
In THREE TO INFINITY, journalist and author Lonny Shavelson shifts from his acclaimed books and NPR stories to a visually compelling world where gender is a rich spectrum of possibilities. The film includes a love story between Micah and Tamara–both “assigned female at birth,” neither is a lesbian – where Tamara is female and Micah is “without gender”. Vera, equally viewed as male, female, or both, falls in love with Rebecca, who sees in Vera “traits and behaviors I’m attracted to, independent of the plumbing.” The film is a story of tension, prejudice and violence against these gender innovators, viewed by many as gender violators, unacceptably “other.”
Directed by Lonny Shavelson, USA, 84 min.
