SWAY (short documentary)

This short documentary tells the story of Andie Hide. Andie was born with a condition called Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome or AIS (incorrectly labeled Hemaphrodite).

Background:

There are 20,000 people with AIS in Australia; physical characteristics and gender identity can vary as some identify themselves as solely male or female while others identify as having a gender that is not exclusively male or female. At the age of five, doctors made a terrible error by deciding she should live as a boy. Within this story we learn more about this condition and how Andie feels about what happened to her when she was younger. "Sometimes there are walls in my dreams; while walls with squares and scales marked on them." - Andie Hider
