Pulitzer Center student fellows Yuhong Pang and Robert Tokanel's film, She's Not a Boy, will screen at NewFilmmakersNY on August 28, 2019.
Tatenda Ngwaru was raised as a boy in rural Zimbabwe. After years spent trying to understand her gender in a restrictive community, Ngwaru moved to the United States to embrace her identity as an intersex woman. She's Not a Boy depicts Ngwaru's experience during the New York Pride Festival.
The film first premiered in December 2018 at the Columbia Journalism School and was an official selection at Wicked Queer: The Boston LGBT Film Festival in April 2019.
NewFilmmakersNY is a year-round film festival that facilitates weekly screenings and quarterly festivals. She's Not a Boy will screen as the special program for the week of August 28.
