74 min.DK/Documentary

SHE MALE SNAILS is a magic, unique and sensitive hybridfilm on the different aspects of a changing androgynous body. There are more aspects to a person than the eye can see. We spend our whole life trying to find a balance between sexual identities and a body that changes from childhood, to puberty, through adulthood. This is a film about the struggle finding that balance and maybe peace. Through a series of intimate bathtub conversations between the director Ester Martin Bergsmark and the writer Eli Levén, the film tells a story about survival where harsh reality get mixed up in a fictive world. Come along on a journey to the promised land of the She Male Snails - a documentary fairytale about a human between two genders, that in order to survive creates a third one.
