Intersex – Male and Female in the Same Body / Hermaphroditen - Eindeutig Zweideutig

Intersex - Male and Female in the Same Body

Claudia, Julian and Anna are hermaphrodites, born with ambiguous genitalia. A very personal inside view of their lives between shame, lies and repression – and their feelings of being „aliens, gender monsters“. 1 out of 1000 newborns is intersexual. Their stories criticize the plastic surgery for babies to sex bodies male or female.
