Synopsis

"In what may be the film of the Festival, Chilean director Sebastián Leilo (Gloria) has created an exquisitely compassionate portrait of the everyday obstacles of transgender existence. Marina is a young waitress and aspiring singer. When her (older) partner dies after an accident Marina comes under suspicion. By virtue of her gender identity she is treated like a criminal, with everyone seeing not a grieving woman but an aberration. Winner of the Silver Bear for Best Screenplay and Teddy Award It may be a timely film but its timelessness as well as the depths of compassion that qualify it as a great one – The Guardian "

104 minutes, Sebastián Leilo , Chile, 2017 (15)
