Sebastián Lelio's A Fantastic Woman has been wowing critics and audiences around the world with its groundbreaking, captivating and deeply humane story about Marina – a trans woman – and her fight for acceptance.
Anchored by a powerhouse central performance from rising star Daniela Vega, the film is an urgent call for compassion towards a community that faces bigotry and hostility on a daily basis.
Soaked in luminous visuals and elevated by elegant flights of surrealism, it is a courageous, audacious and defiant declaration of Marina’s status as a woman – and a fantastic one, at that.
Now, with an Oscar nomination in the bag, we'll be treating audiences in Curzon Soho to a suitably dazzling preview screening on Friday 23 February.
Join us as we delve into Marina's world for an evening of insights and entertainment, where we'll be celebrating what makes this beautiful film so unique. Our screening will include a panel discussion on transgender representations chaired by writer and artist Shon Faye, followed by a special afterparty hosted by Wotever World featuring DJ sets, live performances and a whole lot of extra surprises. Trust us, the Oscars will have nothing on this...
