The struggle on growing up transgender
The feature filmmaking debut from writer-director Lukas Dhont, Girl, is an extraordinarily moving coming-of-age tale about identity and the journey to becoming who you’re meant to be.
Determined 15-year-old Lara – an astonishing performance from newcomer Victor Polster – is a young woman who is fiercely committed to becoming a professional ballerina. She throws herself into this quest at a new school, but finds the usual frustrations and challenges of adolescence are heightened as her body does not bend too easily to the strict ballet discipline because she was born a boy.
The film will be shown tomorrow at 7.30pm at the Spazju Kreattiv cinema. Other shows will feature on April 4 and 10 at 7.30pm and on April 13 and 20 at 8.30pm. For more information, call 2122 3200 or visit www.kreattivita.org.
