The nonlinear narrative video XX0Y is based on the story of a person who recalls his experiences, feelings, and thoughts living as an intersex in Post-Soviet times. The main character owns a zero chromosome and can’t identify himself as a man nor woman. He is rethinking the past, present and future, searching for his own place in a world beyond the constraints of gender.
“XX0Y is a meditative work that draws on my interests in the dual searches for cultural and self-identity. My generation, born in the early 1990’s, is tending to self-determination, trying to reinvent itself and explore the possibilities of post-identity politics.”
