Best known to international audiences for his acclaimed fourth film, Gloria (2013) - which garnered Paulina García the Best Actress Award at the Berlin International Film Festival - Argentinian born, Chilean director Sebastián Lelio turns after a four-year absence with A Fantastic Woman. Featuring another stellar lead performance, Lelio’s latest feature stars Daniela Vega as Marina, a transwoman dealing with grief, transphobia and cold, humiliating bureaucracy.
A vision of defiant resistance, Marina’s trials are kick-started by the death of her lover, Orlando (Francisco Reyes). Having to inform Orlando’s family of the tragedy, Marina is met with suspicion and hostility due to her status as a transwoman. Instead of being comforted during her grief, Marina finds herself having to fight for her home, her rights and even custody of a beloved pet dog. Provocatively queer and female-centred, the Almodovaresque A Fantastic Woman is also deeply intelligent, sexy and tender.
