Content Note: (critical treatment of) transmisia
Kathoum (Nana Benamer), Farah (Naëlle Dariya), Dustin (Dustin Muchvitz) and Raya (Raya Martigny) meet in a café. Exasperated by the transmisia they have to face, the four women start to fantasize about how to fight heternormativity and patriarchy, how to take their revenge.
De la terreur, mes soeurs! sits somewhere between John Waters’ films and But I’m a Cheerleader. It opens up a plethora of transfemme experiences and then lets its protagonists’ fancies run free as they imagine how to give the world its due for all the hatred they suffer. The takes here are as different as the characters, but in all the critical potential they contain, they always come portrayed with a wink. It is fun, it is colorful, it is scathing social commentary – a perfect combination.
