Shushu

"I like being a woman. Because I get more sexy."

At nights Ozkan changes. With wigs and glitter he turns into Shushu, the renowned belly-dancing drag queen of Kyrenia. Ozkan also happens to be gay and living openly without hiding his sexuality. The only one who appears not to know this is his mother, with whom he lives.

Based on interviews and performances, the documentary only scratches the surface of sexuality and gender issues in Cyprus. Filmed by a Greek Cypriot and featuring a Turkish Cypriot, it also raises wider questions of identity in a war-torn country.
