Programmer’s Note: The must-see film of the year. We caught this at the Telluride Film Festival and walked away absolutely speechless.
This Academy Award winner for Best Foreign Film paints an exquisite portrait of a Chilean transgender woman, grieving the death of her partner while navigating unforgiving social mores. Sebastián Lelio’s (Gloria) rapturous melodrama makes us re-think our ideas around gender and cheer for Marina in all her beautiful, headstrong glory. The film is perfectly paced and visually transfixing, anchored by Daniela Vega’s multilayered, emotionally polymorphous debut performance—a feat of acting that deserves so much more than political praise.
