Katoey  The Women We Are

a film by Stefan Jung

KATOEY meets three people in rural Thailand who are clearly and confidently women even though their bodies are male. Integrated to an impressive degree into society, these women have successfully overcome the difference between their physical and mental genders.

What true acceptance is and what it means to welcome differences as something that defines us as humans is what KATOEY is about.
