Pulitzer Center student fellows Yuhong Pang and Robert Tokanel's film, She's Not a Boy, will screen as part of the inaugural Idlewild International Film Festival on August 24, 2019.
Tatenda Ngwaru was raised as a boy in rural Zimbabwe. After years spent trying to understand her gender in a restrictive community, Ngwaru moved to the United States to embrace her identity as an intersex woman. She's Not a Boy depicts Ngwaru's experience during the New York Pride Festival.
The film first premiered in December 2018 at the Columbia Journalism School and was an official selection at Wicked Queer: The Boston LGBT Film Festival in April 2019.
The Idlewild International Film Festival is a women's festival featuring film, music and media education. The festival will feature various blocks of films that each focus on a different theme, according to its website. Some of the featured themes include identity, gentrification, and nature.
