SCENE

Runtime: 17:50

EDGE – the film based on the true story of the main character – Edmund, who deals with various forms of frustration rooted in life as a transgender person in a highly oppressive society. It consists of a series of absurd psychomagical acts leading to the final liberation and allegorical transition into the pearl. In order to create safe space to deal with traumas, Edmund’s family and friends were engaged in this process. The aim was not only to create the right therapeutic conditions for the main actor but also for the viewers dealing with similar issues – both by creating the representation and normalization of transgender bodies and sexuality.

Edmund Krempinski

Edmund Krempiński (he/him, 1998) is transgender queer performer, visual artist and actor based in Łódź, Poland. The graduate of Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków (MA). His praxis consisting mostly of performance and video is based on his own body, which he considers as his primal medium. Inspired by inner life – traumas, fantasies, sexuality and nostalgia, he creates both quirky and serious artworks aesthetically immersed in camp, pornography and pop culture. In April 2023 he became first openly transgender actor employed in polish public theatre (Teatr Nowy in Łódź). Laureate of art critics’ prize on 14. edition of exhibition The Esteemed Graduates of Polish Academies of Fine Arts (Najlepsze Dyplomy 2022).
