A film by Laurence Perigaud

 Text Size  Increase Font Size   Decrease Font Size   divider Printable VersionPrintable Version

Chris feels neither man nor woman, but more like a "Two-Spirit" in between genders. Now turning sixty, this professor of management is taking the big plunge. This sensitive film follows one eventful year in Chris Muth's life, from an operation in Thailand to an eventual return home to Switzerland, where Chris will become Christa. Director Laurence Perigaud gives a highly sensitive and humorous account of this year of transition and transformation—body and soul—of a human being in quest of freedom.

"Chris's quest for femininity is filmed by anthropologist Laurence Perigaud, who brings a trained eye to the story from his dramatic transformation into Christa."L'Espress

"Directed with simplicity and delicacy, this documentary defies stereotypes as it documents a person story of emancipation."Le Matin
