Film showing: Stories of Intersex and Faith
8th November @ 17:45 - 19:45
8th November is international Intersex Day of Remembrance. Come and join us for the first UK screening of the brand-new documentary film Stories of Intersex and Faith, produced and directed by Megan DeFranza and Paul Van Ness and featuring Dr Susannah Cornwall (Theology and Religion, University of Exeter).
The screening will be followed by a Skype Q&A with producer/director Megan DeFranza, and a short response for the Intersex Day of Remembrance from intersex activist Valentino Vecchietti.
“Stories of Intersex and Faith tells the extraordinary stories of five intersex people, allowing viewers to experience what it feels like to be invisible in our culture and subject to abuse and shame simply for being born different. These stories also illuminate unique perspectives about gender, faith, and life; perspectives which are particularly timely for a culture conflicted by questions about sex, gender and religious faith.” (https://www.intersexandfaith.
The screening takes places at the University of Exeter, in the Queen’s Building, room LT1, at 5.45pm on Thursday 8th November. More information about travel to the University of Exeter’s Streatham Campus is here. The Queen’s Building is building 11 on the campus map.
