The title of this work discloses its origin: ‘gimp’, a slur meant to mark a weak or handicapped person and ‘gait’, the manner or style of a person’s walk. The film’s subjects do not hide these from you – do you have a good view?
Director: Panu Saeng-Xuto
The teenaged Tay is a ladyboy, or “kathoey,” as members of this relatively well-tolerated transgender group are called in Thailand. This film follows the beginning of Tay’s self-discovery.
Director: Cali dos Anjos

I Grow More Fearless Each Time I Make It Home Unscathed
Director: Jespa Jacob Smith
