Synopsis

Comprised of photographs and virtual reality volumetric testimonials, Made This Way: Redefining Masculinity is an interactive mixed-media documentary that explores how transgender men are challenging gender norms and redefining traditional masculinity. By exploring the photographic series, and by moving around the virtual space in which the subjects exist, Made This Way: Redefining Masculinity allows audiences to viscerally experience fluid masculinity.

Director’s Statement.
Irem Harnak

I was thinking about gender, masculinity, growing up in a patriarchal society I always wanted to be a man. I am drawn to the ambiguity of gender and capture it in my photographs. Going against the current is revolutionary. Just existing like that, they are breaking boundaries through their bravery and strength.
