Portrait of a Nullo

Portrait eines Nullos
A 2022
Lukas Jones
Original version (German) with English subtitles

Ever since puberty Norbert struggled with the secret compulsion to get rid of his penis. But the desire to be a “nullo”, thus having no genitals, is not medically recognized in Europe. Ridiculed and abandoned, finally he took matters into his own hands …

What drives someone to cut off his penis? What role do nullos take in the debate around gender identities? And why does the medical system leave no option besides dangerous self-surgery? In this documentary, we tell Norbert’s story to find the answers to those questions.
