Muxes

RO: Regizorul stabilit in Los Angeles, Ivan Olita a calatorit pana in orasul indepartat Juchitan din Oaxaca, Mexic pentru a inregistra detalii cu privire la lumea/cultura „Muxe”, populatie care se considera ca a introdus un al-treilea gen in tara. Datorita unei expuneri incomplete la idealismul colonialistilor vestici in aceste comunitati indigene, lumea nu este divizata in doua genuri (masculin si feminin). Localnicii Zapotec au facut loc acestei a treia categorii: Muxes, indivizi care s-au nascut cu organe barbatesti, insa care se identifica cu genul feminin si traiesc in spatiul social sanctionat, dat uitarii, dintre cele doua genuri.

EN: Los Angeles-based director Ivan Olita travelled to the remote town of Juchitán in Oaxaca, Mexico to document the world of the “Muxes”, a demographic considered as the country’s third gender. Not being completely exposed to western colonialist idealisms, in these indigenous communities, the world is in fact not divided simply into males and females. The local Zapotec people have made room for this third category: Muxes, individuals who were assigned male at their birth, but but consider themselves women and live in a socially sanctioned limbo between the two genders.
