SHOUT 18 - A Fantastic Woman 15

Join us for a second chance to see this year’s history making A Fantastic Woman.

‘A Sublime study of love, loss and the trans experience’ ***** - The Guardian

A young singer’s life is thrown into turmoil following the sudden death of her partner. Met with suspicion from the police and contempt from her lover’s relatives, Marina (Daniela Vega) finds herself placed under intense scrutiny, with no regard for her privacy, or her grief.

Winner of the 2018 Academy Award for best Foreign Language Film and featuring a powerhouse performance from Vega (who made history this year as the first open trans person to be a presenter at the Academy Awards).

This screening will be followed by a discussion on trans representation in cinema and the current debates surrounding cisgender actors playing trans roles.
