In My Language

"The first part is in my "native language," and then the second part provides a translation, or at least an explanation. This is not a look-at-the-autie gawking freakshow as much as it is a statement about what gets considered thought, intelligence, personhood, language, and communication, and what does not."

"Body image is an issue for most of us. Whether peculiar to Western societies and an issue created by the media is not explored here. Instead, filmmaker Kim Farrant tackles the personal angle. She interviews five people - a dancer without legs, a former supermodel, a man inside a woman's body, a "fat activist" and a woman with breast cancer - to explore how body shape can mould who we are and how we feel about ourselves. Her subjects are open, intelligent and remarkably honest. We can learn a lot from them." 

Below is a short clip from Kim Farrant, Director of the feature documentary ‘Naked on the Inside’.
