The latest film by Ivan Olita is a piece documenting the far reaches of the southern state of Oaxaca where, in
the indigenous communities around the town of Juchitán, the world is not divided simply into males and females. The
local Zapotec people have made room for a third category, which they call “muxes” – men who consider themselves
women and live in a socially sanctioned limbo between the two genders.
