Monika Treut’s Gendernauts was one of the first films to portray the transgender movement in San Francisco. Twenty years after the film screened in Panorama in 1999, German film producer, director and author Monika Treut seeks out the pioneers of that time. What has changed? How have the lives of the protagonists evolved? San Francisco was once, as Annie Sprinkle puts it, the “clitoris of the USA”, but today the tech industry has a firm grip on the city. Aggressive gentrification has displaced the genderqueer community of yesteryear. Under the Trump administration, hard-won transgender rights are under massive pressure as protection against discrimination in healthcare and freedom of choice in the use of public toilets are rolled back.
Alternating between quiet, unobtrusive images and flashbacks, the film delineates how the gendernauts have grown into their identities over the years, developed their careers and started families, and how their energy continues to have an impact today. Their activism has changed over time, but the struggles continue. New perspectives have been added – such as the relationship between humankind and nature in the Anthroprocene epoch – but also the question of how they want to live in old age.

莫妮卡·楚特执导的纪录片《Gendernauts 》是最早反映旧金山跨性别运动的电影之一。影片 1999 年首次在Panorama上映, 20 年后,德国电影制片人、导演兼作家莫妮卡·楚特回访了那个时代的先驱。过去这些年发生了哪些改变?影片中主角的生活又是如何演变的呢?正如片中角色安妮·斯普林克所说,旧金山曾经是“美国的阴蒂”,但如今,科技行业牢牢控制着这座城市。激进的高档化已经取代了昔日的LGBT社区。在特朗普任下,来之不易的跨性别权利面临着巨大的压力,在医疗保健领域免受歧视的保护措施和使用公共卫生间的选择自由都退步了。

本次放映的这部回访电影《Genderation 》在安静、不显眼的图像和闪回之间交替,描绘了这些“Gendernauts”(不确定自己性向的人士)多年后如何确认了自己的性向、开始他们的职业生涯、建立家庭,以及他们如何在今天继续发挥作用产生影响。他们的激进主义随着时间的推移而发生了变化,但斗争仍在继续。本片增加了新的视角——比方说人类世时代与自然的关系——以及他们希望年老时如何生活的问题。
