Holland Doc 24



Holland Doc 24

On March 6 on the Holland Doc 24 Channel we presented the documentary by Eva Küpper, What's in a name?

Her portret of the transsexual and body art performer Jon Cory from New York won the IDFA Award for Best Student Documentary at the International Documentary Festival in Amsterdam, 2010.

The 52 year-old Jon Cory is a charismatic, spirited New York body artist. Through his sexually ambivalent, explicit performances he expresses his criticism of the prevailing conceptions of gender which he finds are rather limited.

Eversince he decided to insert breast implants to complete his image as gender terrorist, Jon needs to handle his new identity. While his mother has no problems with the new breasts of her son, he still needs to make the choice wheter to call himself Rose or Jon.

Film maker Eva Küpper follows Jon before and after the surgery, and during his studiously preperations of his performances where he tries, just like in the performances themselves, to reach the limits of intimacy.
