In a world unaware of the existence of intersex individuals, Dimakatso survived genital mutilation as a child, while Sharon, a beauty queen, uncovered her hidden male genetics at the age of 21.

As they navigate together the complexities of their identities and challenge deep-rooted societal taboos, their intertwined stories reveal the resilience and beauty of intersex lives hidden in plain sight.





Winner - Best Feature Documentary – Gaze Film Festival 2023

“Uplifting Documentary ‘Who I Am Not’ Offers Painful, Hopeful, Heartfelt Celebration of Intersex Life in a Binary World”

"A touching, humorous and deeply cathartic celebration of intersex life — for both its protagonists and for the audience."
– Christopher Vourlias, Variety

"Who I Am Not is a celebration...The Romanian actor-turned-director’s largely fly-on-the-wall approach is enhanced by the occasional use of more experimental imagery - mostly connected with water. The combination offers an appealing immediacy that is already notching up festival dates, with SXSW, BFI Flare and CPH:Dox all on the agenda after its world premiere at Thessaloniki International Documentary Film Festival."
 "Who I Am Not is a celebration of sorts... a call for empathy and understanding,...in the end, difference is what you make of it."

– Amber Wilkinson, Screen Daily

“…something that will be used in the coming years as a tool to educate people.”
– Tom Harington, Manager, BFI Flare – London

"Who I Am Not teaches its audience that we can only be defined by ourselves, and what we say we are. It's a powerful message that triumphantly carries on through the end of the film.”
– Mathew Creith, Edge Media Network

Who I Am Not is an eye-opening lesson on humanity and identity. The film exploring happiness, navigating family, discrimination, and dating is emotionally wrought and fascinating... It deserves a global audience."
–Liz Whittemore Reel News Daily

"Its heart is what makes it what it is."
– Cineuropa
