Ruth Gumnit; Gumnit, Ruth; Kanopy (Firm)
Format
Video; Streaming Video; Online
Summary
Visible Silence is a rare glimpse into the unspoken lives of Thai toms, dees and lesbians striving for recognition, authenticity, and acceptance in a traditional Buddhist society. It is an intimate story of self and family, love and sexuality, and self-determination where conformity is prized. The film highlights the experience of masculine women (toms) who visibly transgress gender norms, yet are bound to remain silent about who they really are. "Visible Silence" gives voice to their unspoken truths.
