Audience Awards

This film is competing in
2018 LGBTQ Shorts Film Festival

The latest film by Ivan Olita is a piece documenting the far reaches of the southern state of Oaxaca where, in the indigenous communities around the town of Juchitán, the world is not divided simply into males and females. The local Zapotec people have made room for a third category, which they call “muxes” - men who consider themselves women and live in a socially sanctioned limbo between the two genders. Exclusively premiered on NOWNESS: nowness.com/series/define-gender/mexico-muxes-ivan-olita
