Intersex is an umbrella term for people born with variations in their sex characteristics, who comprise 1.7% of the population. In the UK alone that’s over 1.1 million, with 130 million worldwide. From the taboo of existence to creative representation in film, Valentino will take you on a remarkable journey, introducing you to key films, activists and activisms. Through the mediums of narrative fiction, storytelling, documentary, Instagram, and protest: intersex people across the world seek to gain equal rights and freedom from non-consensual, cosmetic, medical interventions in infancy and childhood.
The presentation will be followed by a Q&A. Total running time c110min.
