“Beautiful, unsettling and thoroughly engaging…. the best film I have seen for teaching about the cultural construction of gender and sexuality.”
– Professor Leslie Dwyer, Director of the Center for the Study of Gender and Conflict, George Mason University
"The most realistic depiction of transgender Indonesians I have ever encountered. The film has much to teach us about love, belonging, and the diversity of ways to live a human life."
– Professor Tom Boellstorff, Department of Anthropology, UC Irvine, and author of The Gay Archipelago: Sexuality and Nation in Indonesia
