MIXUGA

Mixuga is a 85 min documentary about transsexuality produced by el Patrol.


If a boy has a dream about the moon in the night before the Nozih-zho ritual, he cannot become a man anymore. He would dress like a woman and wear his hair long, he would not go hunting nor go to war. Instead, he took care of the women's craft and became a MIXUGA.

MIXUGA provides a glimpse of the lives of two transsexual women who could not be more different. One of these women is Laura, who is sixty years old and lives in a shelter for the homeless. Although her battle against loneliness is constant, she faces life with a great deal of courage – and poetry. Tiara, stunningly beautiful and 26 years old, wears Prada shoes with heels that measure 12cm. She has Cinderella ambitions.
