Tales Of The Waria
(USA, 2010, 57 mins)
In Indonesian with English subtitles
Halfway around the world in Makassar, Indonesia, a community of transwomen called the “Waria” - Wanita (Woman) + Pria (Man) - has long been an accepted part of the cultural fabric. However, because physical transition is frowned upon in the world's most populous Muslim nation, they are forced to walk between worlds. In this inspiring documentary, we see how four of these women manage to do that with their heads held high.
