A Fantastic Woman at An Lanntair

November 23, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Marina (Daniela Vega) is planning a future with her boyfriend Orlando (Francisco Reyes) when he suddenly becomes ill and passes away. She is devastated and immediately feels the sting of discrimination as a transgender woman when hospital staff and Orlando’s ex-wife and son challenge her right to grieve and the viability of her lost relationship. Marina is defiant in the face of oppression, though, as the film follows her around with stunning fantasy set pieces revealing her inner life. Lead actor Daniela Vega collaborated with director Sebastián Lelio on the script to bring an authentic trans experience to the story. As a result, A Fantastic Woman represents a positive leap in representation of trans women in cinema.
