IN THE IMAGE OF GOD
Included in the QueerDoc Shorts session (available On Demand) is the screening of In The Image of God:
The fourth generation in his family to be born intersex, Jewish Rabbi Levi was assigned the female gender at birth and grew up thinking he was sick and defective. “In the Image of God” tells the story of his struggles and transitions, culminating today in a life as a religious leader and an LGBTQI+ activist living happily in Los Angeles with his wife.
Screening in Sydney as part of the Oz Doc Shorts session is Past Continuous:
At the age of 72, Ilan and Oscar finally have the right to join in a holy matrimony underneath the chuppah in a synagogue in Sydney. Now, with identical rings and official recognition, Ilan and Oscar are preparing for a journey into the grim past which still pains and troubles them and which, despite the many years that have passed, they still bear within them.
This is a story about an inspiring couple who managed to stay together against all odds.
Directed by Kineret Hay-Gillor, this short-form documentary is told in English and Hebrew with English subtitles.
