"Many of us assume that there are only two genders and that being female or male follows from the sex of our biological bodies. Focusing on the art, photography and performances of five "alternative" gender artists of Maori, Samoan-Japanese, and European descent, Assume Nothing poses the questions: "What if "male" and "female" are not the only options? How do other genders express themselves through art?" Intimate present-day interviews and actuality are interspersed with lush Super-8, 2-D and 3-D animations and beautifully staged performances - blurring the conventions of documentary, animation, drama and gender in the process. Meticulously crafted, playful and provocative, Assume Nothing travels from Wellingtons Red Rocks to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York to explore the potent creative world that flourishes between and beyond genders".
