Tales of the Waria

Buy The DVD


“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


Tales of the Waria  has been traveling the U.S. and beyond, inspiring critical thinking and important dialogue in a time of change. If you would like to bring the film to your school or organization, please contact us.
