Khastegi (Sex My Life) is set in Tehran and tells the story of seven Iranian transsexuals who live pieces of their own lives on the screen. Boys who like to be girls and a girl with a boy’s spirit and energy! Their spirits are not at one with their bodies, and this is a problem more forceful and burdensome in Iranian society with its traditional precepts and tradition of patriarchy. One can sense the depth of their loneliness when one sees that they are not accepted even by their own families. These are young people estranged from their own bodies and spirits, and exhausted by this estrangement from themselves and a society that gives no right whatsoever to them. —khastegi.com
Correct title is "Tedium" not "Sex my Life". Important, impressive docudrama from Motamedian examining a diverse cross section of cd/ts/tv living in modern Tehran. Not a false note is played. Both inspirational and upsetting. A scene where one states that she loves to walk in the rain because it washes away her masculinity and makes her feel like her true self very touching. Highly recommended.
