Gender Derby

+ Life Is Short

“Vertical video quite naturally imposed itself as a formal way of representing the binary/non-binary issue. The vertically split screen revealed itself very interesting to question gender binarism.”

SYNOPSIS

Follow Jasmin in a 100% vertical queer serial.


This documentary serial challenges gender stereotypes by focusing on the singular journey of Jasmin, a gender-fluid transgender boy who is passionate about Roller Derby. Introducing an intimate and unusual portrait, this serial is proposed in vertical format for a face to face with Jasmine trough this unique moment of transition.

Through my documentary experiences, I always have the desire to share the voices of those who reinvent, in the margins, their bodies in motion.

Lu and Jose dive into a frenetic and useless search. They go after the track of Male, a girl who was supposed to date Jose but she never showed up, just because she fall asleep. The paranoic idea that something might had happened to Male, embark this friends on one endless adventure just the night before Lu holds her last college exam. Because Life is short, it reminds us that in order to denormatise we must destroy what is imposed from above, at least from humor. But always being together.
