Indefinable is a short personal essay narrated by a youth who relates to being androgynous, with the freedom of being able to dress comfortably and not have to worry about fitting into traditional ways our society expects girls to present themselves, such as not having body hair. The film is narrated by one person and is supported by images of several diverse youths, all of whom seem happy and comfortable with who they are. The film encourages the viewer to find their own path and use the labels to which they personally relate, not limited to binary roles of male or female. It is a reminder that, especially as a youth, it's okay to consider yourself a work-in-progress and not feel pressured to have everything figured out. The film is thoughtfully written, has a clear beginning, middle and end, relating a personal experience to a more general perspective. It invites questions that could be raised in a discussion that follows a screening of this film. I give this 3 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 12 to 18. Reviewed by Katarzyna K., KIDS FIRST!

The topic of gender is one that is widely discussed in today's society. A teenager encourages people to define their own genders, unfettered by traditional societal gender binaries that can limit those who are trying to define their genders. They want people who are having a difficult or confusing time defining their own genders to know that the whole process is a journey of self-discovery and self-love.
