Greta had just turned 8 years old when she watched the unfolding of 9/11 on her TV in Stockholm. In the following months and years, she saw her fellow countryman, the diplomat Hans Blix, become a major player in the global crisis, as weapons inspector for the UN.

Now, in the 21st century of wars, political extremes and climate catastrophes, Greta reaches out to Blix, now 94 years old, to ask if he can help her make sense of the world. Does diplomacy still have a role? Or is he the last of the great negotiators?

I don’t want to become like my aunt. Like her, I was born as the eldest daughter with the role of the ‘good big sister’ in my family. I was used to my younger brother standing in front of me at family gatherings, and I always felt that there was no place for me in my home. The night before I graduated from college, my drunken dad told me about his sister who committed suicide 40 years earlier. It was the first time I had heard about her. Since then I have been afraid her misfortune would be passed on to me. To face this fear inside me, I decided to make a film about my missing aunt. Blending animation, family archive as well as my own journey, I try to make visible the part of my family story that was erased. To question the place of women in Korean society and to find my own place.

Every night nameless bodies land in Dr. Cristina Cattaneo’s autopsy room. She calls them Pure Unknown. The Pure Unknown belong to the fringes of society. They are homeless, prostitutes, runaway teenagers. Lately, they have mostly been migrants, rejected by the Mediterranean Sea onto the shores of Italy. If all rights belong to the living, nothing is left to the dead. So what happens when the dead have lost their identity? In the face of this growing multitude, no one seems concerned about their right to dignity. No one but Cristina.

What makes a male, and what makes a female? Where do we draw the line, and does it really matter? Sharon-Rose Khumalo, a South African beauty queen, plunges into an identity crisis after finding out she is intersex. In her quest to deal with gender dysphoria, she needs the guidance of somebody just like her. The only person who will help is Dimakatso Sebidi, a masculine presenting intersex activist, who turns out to be her complete opposite. The two parallel but divergent stories offer an intimate look at the struggle of living in a male-female world, when you are both or neither. For the first time in a creative documentary, Who I Am Not gives a voice to the long ignored and mostly silent two percent of the world's population: the intersex community.
