“A careful examination of the tricky territory that comes with figuring out one’s gender identity belatedly.”
REMEZCLA

A riveting examination of identity and what defines us, Being Impossible follows a young woman who discovers she was submitted to several surgeries to correct her intersexual body as a baby. She then has to find herself outside gender binaries. Ariel is a young religious dressmaker who, after a failed sexual encounter, discovers a secret her mother has always kept from her: that she was born intersex but subjected to corrective surgery and raised as a girl. Now growing into adulthood, Ariel is faced with a difficult choice: carry on living as a woman, or risk judgment and social alienation by living as her true self. Nominated for the Gamechanger Award at SXSW, which honours outstanding contributions to cinema by woman, Being Impossible is a powerful and encouraging drama about freedom, self-determination, our bodies and our lives.

This film is unclassified and is restricted for audiences aged 18+.
