We are delighted to publish the first submission as part of our ongoing volume, 14.1. Phoebe Hart’s video essay, Medical Mysteries & Freaky Fables critiques screen-based representations of intersex people; individuals who have reproductive organs at variance with the genetic and/or hormonal sex, who comprise almost 2% of the human population. The essay takes scenes from various television series and proposes a challenge to filmmakers and writers to transcend representations of people with intersex variations beyond mere voyeurism or abjection.
This volume of Screenworks is a rolling publication. Each rolling volume runs from September to July, with the editorial team taking a well-deserved break in August.
