Tiresia

Crew
Directed by Bertrand Bonello


Based on the Greek myth of Tiresias, the blind prophet who was both male and female...Tiresia, a transsexual prostitute, is kidnapped by a man obsessed with her exquisite beauty. Bound by ropes and kept prisoner, Tiresia is deprived of her daily hormones and begins transforming back into a man. Disgusted by this, her captor savagely blinds her and leaves her for dead. Caught in a pitiful state between two sexes, Tiresia develops second sight.
