She’s Not a Boy, a documentary by Columbia School of Journalism student fellows Yuhong Pang and Robert Tokanel, is screening in multiple film festivals.
The documentary follows the life of Tatenda Ngwaru, an asylum-seeking intersex woman who fled Zimbabwe. After spending years trying to understand her gender in a restrictive community, Ngwaru moved to the United States to embrace her identity as an intersex woman. Two years later, Tatenda has learned that even a diverse, queer-friendly city like New York is a hard place to make home.
