Heartfelt and candid…If you seize one voice to articulate the perils and possibilities of the in-between, it ought to be Mitchell’s testimony.

AMY VILLAREJO, DIRECTOR FEMINIST, GENDER AND SEXUALITY STUDIES PROGRAM, CORNELL UNIVERSITY (USA).



An assured and compelling work... manages to combine real insight into a difficult life while retaining a sense of optimism, humour and community.

ANNIE GOLDSON, PHD, TRUSTEE, DOCNZ FESTIVAL (NEW ZEALAND).



BLACK AND WHITE is a rare and wonderful look into the life of an intersex person, bringing a human face to an issue most people never even think about.

MO RATEL, THE AUSTIN GAY AND LESBIAN FILM FESTIVAL (USA).



Recommended…Mitchell’s views and theorizing present a truly interesting, evocative, and empirical view on society’s learned binary view [of gender] and how we might reconsider it.

EDUCATIONAL MEDIA REVIEWS ONLINE (USA).



Three Stars. Recommended.

VIDEO LIBRARIAN (USA).



BLACK AND WHITE shines a sensitive light on a subject that is too often either shunned or sensationalized: the experiences of intersex people (sometimes called hermaphrodites). This beautiful and stylish film artfully explores the potent creative collaboration between Mani Bruce Mitchell and the acclaimed photographer Rebecca Swan...a stunning tribute to Mitchell’s courage and fierce commitment to change.
