Event Description

When her significantly older boyfriend dies under what is made out to be suspicious circumstances, transgender woman Marina (Daniela Vega) comes into conflict with both the man’s family and the authorities, forcing her to fight not only to clear her name, but for the one thing she demands above all: respect. Making nods to Almodóvar and Fassbinder, the new film from Chilean director Sebastián Lelio (Gloria) is both an incisive character study and an alluring exercise in style.
