Once held in esteem in Indonesia, transgender women known as ‘warias’ have in recent times been pushed to the outskirts of society by an increasingly politicized reform-era religious culture. This independent documentary follows these marginalized Indonesians through their day to day routines and social spaces, and examines what happened to turn ‘waria’ into a dirty word. Director Terje Toomistu screens Wariazone (2011) in person, with a Q&A after the film.
