Description

Description: Winner of the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film (2017) and directed by Sebastián Lelio, one of Chile's most successful directors and screenwriters, Una Mujer Fantástica focuses on the life of a transgender woman, Marina (Daniela Vega), who must overcome rejection and harassment after the unexpected and sudden death of her older lover, Orlando (Francisco Reyes).

Set in modern-day Chile, the movie presents viewers with the changes taking place in a country once plagued by a right-wing dictatorship, and where laws protecting LGBTQ have only been recently passed. Una Mujer Fantástica calls on viewers to reflect on love, loss, and hope even in the direst of circumstances. The film will be shown in Spanish with English captions.

Facilitator: Dr. Yvette Fuentes.
