“There are few films about intersexuality.” First time filmmaker J.E Tiglao articulates why it was necessary for him to write the screenplay for Metamorphosis. “Statistically, one out of 2000 is born an intersexual, Most of them are in hiding because of the stigma that’s been attached to their unconventional anatomies. There are very few support systems, and scientific aid is even more scarce. We need to tell their story. You need to know their story.”
Born with both male and female genitals, but raised like a boy by his conservative family, Adam goes through all the things prepubescent boys go through, including a fascination with strange animals he takes for pets and being smitten by a lovely girl. His bucolic world turns upside down when he gets his first menstrual period setting him off on a journey that tests the spiritual and physical limits of sexual identity and into a new world of ambiguity and desire.
