Dear friends,

we would like to recommend you a courageous project by Ring Film, independent production company based in Rome.

Arianna is a story inspired to the real life of 19 year-old intersex (5-ARD) who had believed to be a girl for her entire life. When she was just a little child her parents, in accord with the doctors, chose she would have a sex reassignment, making her the girl they wanted. This is feature film is a trip into the discover of her past, a movie that discloses the intersex. Intersex people are about three million in the world, but Arianna is a film about all of us. By discussing intersex it defines the boundaries of power’s jurisdiction over those who pose a threat to do it, whether they do so intentionally or otherwise. Most of the people in the world still ignore the drama of surgery they had suffered, as most of the countries do not allow a gender that is not male nor female.

The screenplay, conceived by an idea of the director Carlo Lavagna, won a government grant in 2012, but it still lacking money to complete the budget.

One of the strategies used is crowdfunding: a simple way that allows people to contribute and get a perk based on the amount of their donation.
