Ich bin Neutrum

Neutrum is a latin adjective meaning neither masculine or feminine. In this video we see a person talking to the camera in French. It is obvious that French is not her native language. She talks about the difficulties one faces being a stranger, the other. It is important to learn languages but is it possible to integrate completely? To which degree do languages define and form us? The English subtitles have been translated as incorrectly as the French spoken in the video. The video reflects on questions of language, gender and integration.
