Columbia Film Society: A FANTASTIC WOMAN

Fri. Sep 14, 2018 8:00pm - 10:00pm
Smith Theatre

Winner of the 2018 Academy Award for Best Foreign Film. There are few breakthrough performances for trans women in the history of cinema. This makes Daniela Vega’s heartbreaking performance in A Fantastic Woman an essential piece of film history. Director Sebastian Lelio delivers a mesmerizing portrait of defiant femininity, this time with Vega as a transgender woman reeling from the death of her older male partner. While his family mostly rejects her, she maintains her independent spirit through a series of hardships while figuring out a way forward, single-handedly carrying the movie on her fierce gaze. The title does not lie: In A Fantastic Woman, Vega gives us just that in every scene. IndieWire. (In Spanish) (100 minutes).
