No Box for Me. An Intersex Story

October 6, 2019 @ 3:15 pm - 4:30 pm

Free - £8
Close up of a white person with short dark hair and lipstick, smiling with their head resting on their hand.

A heartfelt, poetic documentary focusing on four young adults who – like an estimated 0.5 to 1.7 percent of people – were born with variations in their sex characteristics making it difficult for Western medicine to impose classifications on them. The intersex people in No Box for Me seek to reclaim their bodies and explore their identities. They reveal the error in a binary understanding of gender and highlight the physical and psychological harm unnecessary medical treatments impose on children.

Screening with A Normal Girl (14m) about intersex activist and educator, Pidgeon Pagonis.

Tickets are priced on a sliding scale £0-£8 depending on what you can afford. To book, please use the button below or call CCA box office on +44 (0)141 352 4900.
