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

Thanks to Curzon/Artificial Eye
