Director: Louisa Rechenbach

In a world bound by pink and blue for babies, Hobbit and Jake dare to envision a spectrum for their child. This documentary short captures the nuanced journey of Anoush's first year, where conventional baby experiences are interwoven with the family's pioneering commitment to a gender-open approach. THEY spotlights Hobbit and Jake’s passionate pursuit of a world unconfined by gender norms. Louisa is currently in production on a feature length documentary following the family further - exploring Hobbit and Jake's gender open approach, as they find themselves increasingly questioning their own gender identity and sexuality. Filming over seven years, the film will be an intimate portrait of one couple's attempt to free their child – and themselves - from potentially damaging gender stereotypes.
