A Fantastic Woman

The Screen at Contemporary: Funny Girl

07 Nov 2018

The Screen at Contemporary presents its winter 2018 film season, Funny Girl. This season we explore outspoken, quietly rebellious, sometimes nasty and subversive female characters.

A transwoman’s older partner suddenly dies, throwing her life into disarray. Whilst in mourning she is treated with suspicion by the authorities and is viciously disregarded by his family. Winner of this year’s Best Foreign Film Oscars, it captures the everyday petty indignities often imposed on transwomen and resilience and courage that it takes to wade through the chaos.

A Fantastic Woman
