 CALALAI in-betweenness is a documentary about the
 Bugis people in South Sulawesi, Indonesia, and the
 Bugis culture that has been embracing and accepting
 for centuries the concepts of gender diversity, which
 are implicitly written in the La Galigo manuscript.
 According to this manuscript, humans consist of five
 separate genders, and Calalai and Sanro (used to
 denote a woman who has become a spiritual healer)
 refer to a person who is assigned female at birth but
 takes on the role of a heterosexual male in society.
 This documentary introduces the Calalai and Sanro
 and gives to a chance to think again. [KANG Ba-da]
