Determined 15-year-old Lara (Victor Polster) is committed to becoming a professional ballerina after starting at a new school. Though supported by her father, Lara's adolescent frustrations and impatience are heightened as she prepares for gender reassignment surgery.
Having been born a boy, she faces a world that questions her gender and selfhood, while also also taking on the intense physical demands of a dancer's life.
Based on a real-life equivalent, Lukas Dhont's Cannes prize-winning film is a superb debut that puts trans experience centre stage.
Director Lukas Dhont joins us for a Q&A following a preview screening of the film.
