Slow gender elegance
This narrative, experimental documentary moves like its namesake – slowly. But also like its namesake, a close look reveals a beautiful and hypnotic rhythm of movement. The film is director Bergsmark’s exposition on his relationship with fellow trans individual and author Levén, and their trials of being neither boy nor girl (but rather Boy Hag-Ladies), told through exquisitely shot scenes in the bathtub, vignettes of characters and superb shots of Swedish nature. Thoughtfully kept short (70 minutes), the film is a real treat and will run in its original Swedish with English subs.
Don't miss Swedish author and subject of this award-winning doco, Eli Levén, at our next lit meeting with Dichter und Dichter vs. Borderlines. Surreal Scandinavian sublimation awaits. Join us on Wednesday, October 10, 20:00 at Salon - Zur wilden Renate.
