Followed by a talk with Julia Fuhr Mann
If history is written by the winners, where does that leave those who were never allowed to be part of the game? Julia Fuhr Mann’s genre-bending documentary follows a collective of queer athletes as they set out to honor those who were excluded from a place on the winner’s podium. They meet, among others, Amanda Reiter, a trans marathon runner who struggles with the prejudices of sports organizers, and Annet Negesa, an 800m runner who was pressured by international sports federations to undergo hormone-altering surgery. Together they create a radical poetic utopia far from the rigid gender rules of competitive sports.
