– genderness is an exploration of a beehive that doesn’t like bees, or even itself for that matter. It would rather be human and thus transformed. For me it’s a metaphor for choosing to be either man or woman … just to realize that I don’t really have to make that choice, I can be both, says Anders Ramsell. Who has written, directed and animated the film.

genderness saw its world premiere at the Beverly Hills Film Festival in Los Angeles in the spring of 2016. The European premier took place at Sweden´s official festival Göteborgs Film Festival in January 2017.
Rutger Hauer, who did one of the leading roles in Ridley Scott´s Sci-Fi classic Blade Runner, contacted Ramsell after he saw the painted version Blade Runner – The Aquarelle Edition done by the artist. This lead to Hauer takeing on the roll in genderness.
The auto-portrait is central in Ramsell´s animations which means Hauer takes on the character of Ramsell in genderness.
The half hour long Blade Runner – The Aquarelle Edition has for example been exhibited at The Nordic Watercolor Museum in Sweden in 2012 and screened at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam in November 2016.
The soundtrack is performed by Ramsell together with renowned Swedish guitarist Janne Schaffer.
