Watch Party: Fabiana

October 10 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free - £8
A white woman with long dark hair, glasses, a dark vest, and a cigarette hanging out her mouth sits in a truck with a large wing mirror beside her face and a blurred countryside landscape in the background.

For over three decades, Fabiana has lived a nomadic life as a trans woman trucker in Brazil. She has crossed the vast country hundreds of times over, never staying anywhere for too long. Confident and adventurous, she’s at home amongst the mostly-male truckers she encounters, and often hooks up with other women in her travels. But is she ready to finally settle down, when the open road has been her life? This documentary joins her on her last few journeys on the eve of retirement, sharing the connections and intimacies of her life.

Followed by a filmmaker Q&A. Part of Daydreams and Testimonials: Queer South America, curated by lesbian Argentinian translator, writer, and comedian A.B. Silvera. Fabiana will also be available on SQIFF’s Vimeo on Demand channel between 5 and 18 October.

Tickets are on a sliding scale of FREE, £2, £4, £6, or £8. To book, click the button below. You can book a ticket up to one hour before the start time. We will send out a Zoom link for the event to ticket holders a day or two beforehand.
