FILM: A Fantastic Woman (Free student screening)
A Fantastic Woman
Apr 4-7 | 2017 | Chile | Sebastián Lelio | Spanish language | 100 min
This is a story of a resilient woman, Marina, refusing to live her life according to the demands of others and rebelling against a stubborn patriarchy that has pushed her to the margins of society. Marina is a young transgender woman who works as a singer and waitress in Santiago, Chile, and who has just watched her lover succumb to an aneurysm. Before his body is even cold, Marina is being treated with suspicion and contempt, less as a person than as a problem. Shocking and enraging, funny and surreal, rapturous and restorative, this is a film of startling intensity. This film has won Best Film or Best Foreign Language Film from thirteen international competitions, including the 2017 Academy Awards. Read more on IMDb.
